      WESTMORELAND COUNTY, VIRGINIA DEEDS & WILLS. No. 9; 1738-1744 {Antient Press}: pp 200-203
      IN THE NAME OF GOD, Amen. I GEORGE TURBERVILE of HICCORY HILL in Cople Parish in Westmoreland County in Virginia, Gent., being in health and perfect memory (blessed be God therefore) and considering the uncertainty of this transitory life in order to a more ready resignation of my immortal Soul unto the Almighty and most merciful God that gave it when it shall be his pleasure to require the same and being sincerely sorry for all my sins past but in full faith and hopes of pardon and of a joyfull resurrection to an everlasting State of Bliss, Glory and hapiness in and through the mercy merit and meditation of my Blessed Saviour and Redeemer Jesus Christ, 1 do prepare make and declare this to be my Last Will and Testament in manner and form following;
      Imprimis. I desire that all my debts that I owe in right or conscience to any person or persons whatsoever be truly paid out of my Estate by my Executors hereafter named as soon after my decease as conveniently they can.
      Item. For as much as my poor Daughter, ELIZABETH TURBERVILE, hath from her infancy been afflicted with convulsion fits which is yet frequently troubled with by means whereof her reason is very much impaired so that she is never likely to make any considerable figure in this life and her condition being such that the more Estate she hath the redier she will be liable to ruin and destruction and therefore as I have lately had the opinion of three of the most considerable Lawyers in this County on the Deed made by Colo, HENRY ASHTON to me for sundry slaves in marriage with FRANCES, his Daughter, the Mother of said ELIZABETH, by which opinion they all agree that I (surviving my said Wife) have absolute right to the said slaves. Whereupon for the reasons aforesaid, I do hereby give devise and bequeath all the said slaves that are now living mentioned in the said Deed with all their present and future increase unto my dear little Son, JOHN TURBERVILE, and his heirs for ever,
      Item. It is my will and desire that my said Daughter, ELIZABETH TURBERVILE, live in my dwelling house and to have the room called hers as usual in my life time and to her I give the use of my Negroe woman Moll, who always takes care and looks after her to continue to do the same and in case of the said Molls death, I desire my Executors to choose any Negroe woman out of my Estate most suitable to look after and take care of my said Daughter, ELIZABETH TURBERVILE, and I beg and desire my dear Wife, MARTHA TURBERVILE, and my Executors to take all the care they can of my said poor unhappy Daughter, ELIZABETH, that she doth not suffer for want of necessary of life suitable to her circumstance, and the same I give and allow out of my Estate during my life, provided that if the Rents and profits seized in fee of sundry tracts of land the rents of which I reckon be more than sufficient to find her Clothing, therefore as she is in such unhappy circumstance by means of the convulsion fits aforesaid, I think it needless to give or leave her any more than what I have before in this my Will expressed
      Item. As I have exchanged lands with BLANCHFLOWER DUNKEN and JOHN Locus, for which Deeds have not been executed to them, therefore I do hereby impower my Executors hereafter named to pass and execute such Deeds to them as shall be agreeable to the Bonds by me passed to them for that purpose.
      Item. As I have agreed with ROBERT THOMAS and JOHN CANNADY to Lease to each of them for three lives One hundred and fifty acres of my seat of land in PRINCE WILLIAM County by me called GOLDEN GROVE, on which they are now seated and also to WILLIAM SHORTRIDGE I've agreed to Lease him one hundred acres of my tract of land by me called WOODBURY HILL whereon he is now seated for three lives, therefore to the end these poor men may not be disapointed, I do hereby impower my Ears. hereafter named to pass and execute Leases to them severally for the lands aforesaid in manner aforesaid
      Item. I give twenty pounds Sterling to be sent for to Great Brittain in course goods and to be distributed here to the poor of Cople Parish by my Executors hereafter named;
      Item. I give and bequeath to the use of NOMONY CHURCH in Cople Parish Ten pounds Sterling to buy Ornaments such as the Lords Prayer, the Creed and Ten Commandments which I desire my Exrs. may send for to Great Brittain as soon as conveniently can after my decease at the charge of my Estate;
      Item. It is my will and desire that my dear loving Wife, MARTHA TURBERVILE, have the use of my Dwelling House together with the Land, stocks, slaves and plantations thereunto adjoining (vizt.) Mill Quarter and MOCHOTICK QUARTER together with the use and benefit of my Water Grist Mill to use the same in the frugal manner as usual to be done in my life time for the benefit and supporting of her self and my Children; And this I give and after she marrys, I then desire she may have no more Estate than her Dower and Thirds as the Law allows and this I think reasonable because my said Dear Wife hath a right to a considerable in Suffolk in Great Brittain by the Will of her Mother, MRS. MARTHA LEE, of which I have benefitted or had but a very trifle nor have had any fortune with my said Wife, and perhaps the Children I have had by her may never be the better for any part of her Estate aforesaid, which considered I hope my Dear Wife will be satisfied with this my Will and think when I am gone that I have done her Justice by this my Will. as she hath been a kind and good Wife to me, I doubt not but that she will continue to be such a Mother to my dear Children after my decease and as my dear Wife hath great merrit and will have no dispeicable fortune I doubt not but that she will have admirers enough. I therefore I pray God to advise her in good choice a Husband and no matter how soon she marry after my decease (having regard to decency) as the best of women are but helpless alone,
      Item. It is my will and desire and I do hereby give and bequeath to my dear Daughter, LETTICE TURBERVILE, six hundred pounds to be paid out of my Estate by the crops of my slaves shall make to be paid her at the day of marriage or when she shall attain to the age of twenty one years which shall first happen. I also give to my Daughter, LETTICE, Bellanda's mulatto girl Hannah and Molls girl Sue and four Negroe girls or women to be purchased by my Executors out of a Negro Ship as soon as conveniently they can after my said Daughter shall marry, the said four Negroes to be as near as can be adjudged of her own age.
      Item. I give all my Books of every sort, Divinity, Law &c. unto my dear Son, JOHN TURBERVILE, and I desire him to make the best use of them he possibly can by reading and studdying of them
      Item. I give unto my dear Son, JOHN TURBERVILE, all my Silver Plate of what sort soever and my Seal Gold Ring with my Coat of Arms and all my pictures that shall be in the House at the time of my death;
      Item. It is my will and desire that my Dear Children have the best education they can suitable to their Degree and Circumstance and virtuously brought up in the principles of the Church of England as by Laws established; But that not any of them be sent out of Virginia for schooling or education not even my Son, JOHN, but I most earnestly
      desire my Exrs may take care that he my dear Son, JOHN TURBERVILE, may havc all the good learning that Virginia can afford
      Item. I give and bequeath to my Dear Son, JOHN TURBERVILE, all and singular my Estate both real and personal not otherwise in this my Will disposed of to hold to him my said Son and his heirs for ever;
      Item. It is my will and desire that all my personal Estate be valued and appraised in the several Counties where the same is and that Inventorys of the whole be returned into the County Court of Westmoreland and recorded on the Records of the said Court;
      Item. I nominate constitute and appoint my good and well beloved Friends, Colo, HENRY In of Westmoreland County, LANDON CARTER Esqr. and my Godson, Mr. JOHN TAYLOE, Son of the Honble, JOHN TAYLOE, Esqr., of the County of RICHMOND, Executors of this my Last Will and Testament and I do most earnestly desire all my said good Friends to take upon them the execution of this my Last Will and Testament and I hope they will for the good of my dear Wife and Children and I give to each of my Executors a mourning Ring of a Guinea value.
      Item. Whereas Colonel HENRY ASHTON by his Deed of Gift, to me and his Daughter, FRANCES, my late Wife, deceased, soon after our intermarriage, conveyed and settled upon us and the heirs or issue of our two bodies begotten or to be begotten all those two peices of land he had sometime before that purchased of JOHN WILSON and JOHN OWENS which Gift so to us made created a fee tail to the aforesaid lands which after the death of my said Wife and my intermarriage with my seccon Wife, by and with the consent and approbation and good liking of the said Colo. HENRY ASHTON, and after his giving passing and executing to me his Deed of General Release of Right to the said land which Deed is recorded among the Records of Westmoreland Court, upon my settling one thousand acres of land in the County of PRINCE WILLIAM of greater value to the same uses I obtained an Act of Assembly of this Colony with Royall assent thereto for the docking the said Entail which occasioned me a very considerable expense and trouble; And whereas afterwards and since the death of the said Colo, ASHTON, JOHN HOBSON, Son and heir of the afsd. JOHN HOBSON, produced a defeasance Bond under the hand and seal of the said Colo. ASHTON passed to the said HOBSONs Father at the time he executed the Deed for the land afsd., which according to the opinion of the most learned Lawyers of this County made the Deed for as afsd, passed by the said JOHN HOBSON the Exr. unto the said Colo. HENRY ASHTON for the land aforesaid but a more mortgage so that I have been obliged to come to the best terms I could with the said JOHN HOBSON the Younger and have paid him Forty pounds for his conveying tome his right of the land afsd. or must have been turned out of possession thereof, and have lost all my improvements, And for that I have been lately advised by the Learned in the Law that the other land so as aforesaid purchased by the said ASHTON of the said JOHN OWENS, deced., Father of the said JOHN OWENS. and the heirs of their body begotten so that I daily expect to loose that too. Therefore forasmuch as I think it would be unreasonable that the thousand acres of land in the County of PRINCE WILLIAM so as afsd. entailed and settled to the same uses which these lands never should remain so entailed and settled and to goe from my heirs, And for that I was advised by Sr. JOHN RANDOLPH in his life time that Imight by a Proceeding in the Honourable the General Court, have that thousand acres of land vested in me and my heirs again in fee simple upon paying or settling to those uses the value of what Colo. ASHTON paid for the land so as aforesaid by him purchased of the said JOHN HOBSON and the said JOHN OWENS: Whereupon it is my will and desire that if it should so happen that I do not gat these affairs settled in my life time that my Exectors get the done as soon after my decease as possibly they can; And that the value which Colo. ASHTON paid for the lands as aforesaid be paid out of my Estate and settled to the same uses as that thousand acres of land is in the County of PRINCE WILLIAM aforementioned and that I apprehend may be done tho a chattel personal as money or tobacco cannot be entailed yet lands may b© purchased there with and then that may be entailed and this I most earnestly entreat my Ears. to transact;
      In Witness whereof I the said GEORGE TURBERVILE have to this my Last Will and Testament set my hand and affixed my Seal this 16th day of October Anno Domini 1740
      Signed Sealed and declared by the Testator afsd, as and for his Last Will and Testament in presence of us JOHN ATTWELL
      Be it known for that whereas since the makeing my Last Will and Testament on this sheet before mentioned and expressed, my Dear Wife is again bigg with Child. Therefore it becomes my Paternal and indispenciable duty to make suitable provision for it and therefore I do accordingly make this Codicil to my said Last Will and Testament
      hereby willing and bequeathing to the said Child that my Wife is now bigg with if the same shall prove a boy all my Seat of Land scituate lying and being on FLATLICK and SALSBURY PLAIN RUN in County of PRINCE WILLIAM containing in the whole between four and five thousand acres as also all the land I hold in KING GEORGE and STAFFORD Counties between HORSPEN RUN of RAPPA: RIVER and ROCKEY RUN of POTOMACK CREEK where I have lately seated a quarter which said two lofts of land I hereby give and bequeath to such Son (which my Wife is now bigg with) together with all the slaves and Stock of Cattle, hogs, sheep and horses and all other things and improvements which shall be found on or upon the same belonging to me at the time of my death to hold to him and his heirs for ever, if he attain the age of twenty one years; But in case it shall please God that the Child which my Wife is now bigg with proved a Daughter, that then and in such case I give and bequeath to such Daughter four hundred and fifty pounds and three young Negro women about her own age to be purchased by my Exrs, (in my said Will named) and paid to such Daughter when she shall attain to the age of twenty one years or day of marriage which shall first happen, which said purchase money for the slaves afsd. and the said four hundred and fifty pounds to be paid and raised out of the profits of my whole Estate, And for as much as I apprehend the having this Child will render me less able to give my dear Daughter, LETTICE, so good a fortune as I intended and expressed in my said Will, and therefore it is now my will and desire instead of the Six hundred pounds I have given her my said Daughter in my Will aforesaid, it is my will and desire that she have but five hundred pounds and instead of the four slaves to be purchased for her that she have but two, together with the two slaves specifically named: But if please God this Child my Wife goes with should not attain to the respective age of twenty one or day of marriage as afsd., That then and in such case my will aforesaid and all the Legacies therein mentioned to stand good as it was at first intended and expressed. And it is my earnest desire that if it shall please God this Child which my Wife now is bigg with should live that it have the best education its circumstance can afford to be had in this Country but not to be sent to Great Brittain. In Witness whereof I GEORGE TURBERVILE. do hereunto this Codicil set my hand and affix my seal this 30th day of March 1741.
