In the name of God Amen, Agreable to my will I leave my part of the vessell or schooner called the Unity, the Juniper Swamp, my turning tools and implements all to be sold at the descretion of the executors.
I give and bequeath unto my Wife Esther TOWNSEND the loom and all the rigging thereunto belonging, the linnen wheel and ticking cradle, and largest juniper chest to her forever. And also that she should have the use only of all the residue of my estate during her widowhood or as long as she remains my widow, and then to belong equally to our two Daughters Milisent TOWNSEND and Sarah TOWNSEND to them and their heirs forever. But in case both the children should die before their Mother and having no heir it is my will and desire that she should have and enjoy forever the whole of my goods and estate then remaining.
And I do nominate and appoint my Wife Esther and Willis BRITE Esq. executors to this my Will and Testament. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 18th day of October 1779.
/s/ Jacob TOWNSEND and a seal
