    I, Thomas Stephens of Middletown, do make my last will and testament: I give to my son Thomas Stevens, whom I ordain sole executor, all and singular my lands, messuages and tenements, by him freely to be possessed and enjoyed, by him and his heirs forever. I give unto my wife Jane the use of my now dwelling house with a convenient garden spot and a choice of one cow, to use and improve during the whole time of her widowhood. And the whole of that estate that she brought to me with her, I freely resign up to her again. Item. I give to my two daughters, Hannah and Sarah, with my son Thomas abovesaid, the whole of my moveable estate and debts, after my just debts and funeral charges are paid, which I do order to be paid out of that £34 bill which is in the hands of John Hamlin, Esq., of Middletown. I do request Mr. William Russell and Joseph Rockwell to be overseers.
