Estate Records

From "Reports of Cases Determined in the General Court of Virginia 1730 to 1740 and 1768-1772" by Thomas Jefferson, Charlottesville, Published by F Carr & Co. 1829, Jefferson Clark, Printer. P. 132-136; :
Herndon et al. v. Carr: William Carr the testator, having a wife and several children viz. William, the defendant, his eldest son and heir at law, and others, plts., and being seised and possessed of an estate in lands, slaves, and personal chattels, by will, dated August 2, 1760, after giving several specific legacies, bequeathed the residuum of his estate in these words: ?all the rest of my estate, both real and personal, not herein particularly mentioned, to be equally divided between my wife and children, viz. William, Ann, Elizabeth, Charles, Agnes, Walter, Phoebe, and Thomas; and I do hereby give the estate by this clause of my will devised, to my wife and children, respectively, and to their heirs forever. Provided nevertheless, that if either of my said children die before they arrive to the age of twenty-one years or marriage, that their part given by this clause, be sold by my executors, and the money arriving by such sale be equally divided among my wife, if living, and all my children or their representatives.' By a codicil to his will annexed, dated Aug 12, 1760, he empowered his executors, of whom Southerland a defendant was one, to divide his personal estate according to his will. Within a few days afterwards, one Walter Chiles having a considerable estate in lands, slaves, and personal goods, died intestate, leaving as his representatives, the children of two deceased sisters, viz. The testator William Carr, and his younger brothers and sisters, children of the eldest sister, and the defendant Southerland and his younger brothers and sisters, children of the youngest sister. Where by the sd. William Carr, the testator and the sd Southerland, became entitled each to a moiety of the slaves of the said Chiles, paying to their brothers and sisters a proportion of their value. William Carr, the testator, had notice of this accession to his estate, and died soon after without having altered or republished his will. And the question was whether the slaves which descended to him, after making the will, should pass by the will or not?..... Wythe for plaintiffs.. Pendelton for defendants. It was decreed the new acquired slaves did not pass under the will.
