      In the Name of God Amen, I Landon Carter of Sabine Hall in Richmond County being of sound and disposing mind and memory the fourth day of September in the year of our Lord seven hundred and seventy do make this my last Will and Testament hereby revoking all other Wills that have been heretofore made by me.

      Item 1st. I intend that my son Robert Wormeley Carter shall have one half of my slaves excepting I have hereafter given to George Carter my grandson and to Robert Hamilton and the other half much the same excepting just mentioned to be actually divided between my sons Landon Carter and John Carter. But whereas I have by a kind of gift or schedule signed by me the twenty second of December in the year Seven thousand and sixty hereunto annexed in a manner made over and given to my sons Landon and John forty two slaves to be equally divided between them. And whereas I have also given to my son Robert Wormley Carter fourteen slaves the thirteenth day of November in the same years and Schedule hereunto annexed which said several slaves of said sons have severally and respectively had the possession of agreeable to such intended Gifts.
      I do hereby appoint my friends Mr. Nelson Berkeley, Mr. Robert Beverly, The Honble. John Tayloe and Mr. Richard Parker my trustees to divide all my slaves except as before mentioned to George Carter & Robert Hamilton into four equal parts and I do desire that in the said division they have negros to the number and not to the Quality of these Slaves that have already been given or mentioned to have been given by me (but not their increase) to my said sons the gifts before mentioned so as my intention may be complied with in giving my estate as I have before declared (to wit) two fourths of my slaves to be divided to my son Robert Wormley Carter to be allotted him by my said Trustees in which lot Johnson a Mulatto, Betty a daughter to old Frank and [creased - next two-three lines partially illegible] not their increase may be included. One fourth part of my said slaves including those before mentioned to be given by deed as aforesaid (but not their increase) so my son Landon Carter and his [illegible] fourth part including those slaves before said to be given by the said Deed but not their increase.
      To my son John Carter to be allotted him by my said trustees as aforesaid, and in order to prevent any [illegible] that may otherwise happen in the Division and for a future [illegible] to my said Trustees in the division of my slaves as aforesaid I do discharge my intention to be that my several Sons amt. stand to their satisfaction in the slaves I have by deed as aforesaid given them so that the number of such slaves whereby given by the deed as aforesaid must be the principal Consideration of my said trustees and the division to be made as aforesaid without their [illegible] from the date of the said gift which I intended each son should [illegible- fold/crease]

      [page 2]
      by as I subjected them to any loss that might happen in the Slaves given them as before.

      Item 2d. As I have given so large a proportion of my slaves to my son Robert lest it should be thought that the slaves which I hold under the Will of my deceased brother George Carter are entailed (though I am fully persuaded they are not) I do declare it to be my Will and desire that my said son Robert should only have one Moiety or half part of all my slaves including of such as may be adjudged to be entailed upon him on any suit or [examination?] to be brought by him or given on his favour of his heirs for the recovery of them upon my Brother George’s Will.

      Item 3d. I give and devise to my son Robert Wormeley Carter and his heirs forever all my lands in the counties of York, Charles City, King & Queen, Lancaster, Northumberland, Richmond, Westmoreland, King George & Stafford and all my lands upon Chenandoah [sic] River as is all those in the County of Frederick as that tract on the blue Ridge on the Virginia side of Chimans River as it is called by the upper Inhabitants [crease - illegible] I have hereinafter given to Robert Hamilton in case that tract may happen in King George, Stafford or Prince William Counties.

      Item 4th. In Confirmation of a deed I have only intended to make to my Sons Landon and John I do give to them both of my Bull Run Tracts of Land to be equally divided between them in the manner following. First the whole land to be run round from the Corner Tree by John Young’s Plantation to the new tract on the Piney branch along the line that divides Mr. Page’s land and Mr. Armistead’s formerly my brother George’s land from my largest tract and from there round the first two tracts to the first mentioned corner tree at John Young’s as before. Then by a line to be run from [illegible] in that first line from John Youngs corner to the Piney Branch so that the said lines shall run below the old quarter called the Bull Quarter and the New Quarter seated upon the Fork of the Run called the Cow Quarter to be divided and equally affect the two Quarters upon which my two sons are seated (to wit) my son Landon on the old Quarter and my son John on the New Quarter; this division to be quite equal in [illegible] as I expect a dividing line to run to [illegible] here in the bounding lines on the back or other side of those tracts as to also make the Division equal in goodness. The lower part of which division I give to my Son Landon and his heirs forever. And the upper part of the said Division I give to my Son John and his heirs forever [fold/torn] or any three of them to see this dividing line run so at my intention may be perfectly complied with for I always intended that Landon should have the old Quarter and the lands claimed for that Quarter use over Bull Run, and that my Son John should have the New Quarter and the lands claimed for that Quarter towards the old Quarter before my sons either of them seated these and I hope this dividing line can be made equally between both of them with as little damage as possible to either of them when a [illegible] is had to the time of this intended division which to be sure was about the time of the date of that Gift or Schedule hereunto annexed which gives the forty-two slaves into their possession.
      Item 5th. I give and devise unto my son Landon Carter and his heirs forever one moiety or half part of my lands on Goose Creek (that is )such [bottom of page missing].

      [page 3]
      them as are situate lying and being in Loudoun, Fairfax, Prince William or Fauquier Counties. The other moiety or half part of my said lands on Goose Creek and so forth I give and devise unto my son John Carter and his heirs forever. The lands on both sides of Chenandoah River however given before to my son Robert excepted, provided any part of them shall lie in either of the Counties of Loudoun, Fairfax, Prince William, or Fauquier. And also that Tract on Goose Creek adjoining to Leesborough Town which I have hereinafter given to my Grandson George. And also that tract of land on Summer Duck Run which I have hereinafter given to Robert Hamilton son of the late Gilbert Hamilton to be accepted if either of the said Tracts shall be in either Fauquier, Prince William, Fairfax or Loudoun Counties. The division of these lands on Goose Creek between my said two sons Landon and John Carter to be made by my [fold - one line illegible] whom they shall appoint at the reasonable expence of my said two sons.

      Item 6. Having paid my Daughter Berkeley her full fortune long ago and also given her her Mothers gold watch new fitted up and with a new gold Chain to it I only hereby give her the sum of twenty pounds Current money to be disposed of by her as she may please.

      Item 7. Having likewise paid off one half (to wit) four hundred pounds sterling of my daughter Maria Beverly’s fortune the remaining four hundred pounds sterling if it should be unpaid at the time of my death, I do direct my three sons Robert Landon and John to pay as soon as conveniency will permit of together towit the law [fold - line illegible] on the said four hundred pounds [illegible] from the second year after the marriage of my said Daughter Maria to Mr. Robert Beverly in the same proportion that they my sons are directed to pay off their younger Sisters fortunes hereafter mentioned and I also give unto my Daughter Beverly a handsome gold watch and chain together with the sum of twenty pounds Current money to be disposed of by her as she may please.

      [page 4]
      Item 8. I give unto my Daughter Lucy the sum of eight hundred pounds sterling to be paid to her by her Brothers Robert Landon and John in the same proportion which they take any Slaves to wit Robert one half Landon one fourth and John one fourth hoping and indeed directing that she shall be contented with the interest thereof from the day of my death until it shall be convenient for them in any reasonable time to pay their respective parts of the said Legacy And I also give to my said Daughter Lucy a handsome gold watch and chain together with the sum of twenty pounds Current money to be disposed of by her as she shall please which watch and money I hereby direct my sons to provide in their same proportion that they are ordered to pay her fortune in And it is my desire that if she chuses it she may live with either of her Brothers without any expence of board And that my Negroe Girl Franky (but not any increase of the said Frankys) before allotted as a Child of Mulattos Betty’s to my son Robert as his part of the division of my slaves may wait upon my said Daughter Lucy until she shall marry or die for which purpose my Trustees are desired to compensate my son Robert in the division as before which they are requested to allot for the time which this Wench Franky may attend my daughter Lucy.

      Item 9. If my Daughter Judith should be under the age of twenty one years or not married at the time of my death I give unto her the same fortune of eight hundred pounds Sterling to be paid to her in the same manner as her Sister Lucys is directed to be paid. And in case of my said Daughter Judith should die before she arrived to the age of twenty one years or marries, it is my will that the said Legacy shall sink into the estate of my three sons in the same proportion in which they are directed to

      [page 5]
      raise it but the [interest?] amount heretofore of the same for as long as she shall live after my death under age or unmarried annually to be paid to her. And also I give her a handsome Gold watch and Chain together with the sum of twenty pounds Current money to be disposed of as she shall please which watch and money are to be provided by her Brothers as is directed in the devise to her Sister Lucy. And as my daughter Judith may be under age and unmarried at the time of my decease in such case I appoint her three Brothers to be her Guardians and also direct that she may live with which of them she pleases without any expences of Board the Interest of her fortune from my death being sufficient to cloath and otherwise maintain her. And that my Negro Wench Whinney (but not any of the said Winneys increase) also constantly wait upon her so long as she shall live single for which purpose I desire my Trustees before mentioned may pay a proper consideration to which ever of my Sons the said Winney may fall in the division of my Slaves which they are requested to allot for the time that the said Winney shall be so waiting on my Daughter Judith.

      Item 10th. I intend to have given to Robert Hamilton Son of the late Gilbert Hamilton that tract of land which I purchased of Tobias Pursell lying and being on Summer duck Run in which soever County it may be, together with six young working slaves one third to be females, to be provided then two years after my decease by all my Sons in the same proportion that they are directed to pay their Sister’s Legacies. I say I intended this Legacy to the said Robert Hamilton and his heirs forever; but having seen every good purpose of this my intention in great danger of being affected through the weakness of his mother in keeping him at home to loiter and mispend his time without the last Chance of improving himself to take care of (perhaps) all that he will ever have upon, I will now attempt to take that case for him. Therefore I hereby desire the said six Slaves to be purchased within two years after my decease by my sons as before mentioned and their increase unto the said tract of land lying and being [fold - most of line illegible] that the said land and Slaves go first to the said Robert Hamilton as soon as he arrives to the age of twenty one years after my death, for and during his natural life and after his decease the said lands and slaves, together with their increase, to descend to the heirs of his Body lawfully begotten, and from want of such the said land to descend
      to my son Robert and his heirs forever, but the said Slaves and those with all their increase to return to my said three Sons Robert, Landon and John and their heirs forever in the same proportion as they are directed to purchase the said Slaves (that is) Robert one half of all the Slaves and their increase, Landon one fourth and John one fourth of the said Slaves and their increase.

      [page 6]
      Item 11th. Reflecting with a grateful as well as Brotherly concern that the name of George would be lost in my Family from whom I had received a very comfortable part of my Estate And being persuaded that through my means my Son Robert had a Child & heir baptized by the name of George, Now, to continue such an affectionate will and grateful Benefaction to some degree and permanency There by order and direct that my tract of land adjacent and Continuous to the Town of Leesborough in the County of Loudoun shall be called and go by the name of Georgia. And if it should not be done before my death to be immediately seated with Twelve young working Slaves one half of these females to be chosen by my Trustees our of the young Slaves that I leave behind me before any division shall be made of my Slaves among my Sons as is before directed which Lands and Slaves together with their increase I hereby give unto my Grandson George Carter the Son of Robert Wormley Carter and to his heirs forever to be immediately invested in his father Robert Wormeley Carter to and for the use of the said George in the manner following (to wit) That two thirds of the profits arising annually out of the land so seated with Slaves shall be constantly accounted for by my Son Robert in the County Court of Richmond during the minority of the said George, which two thirds shall from time to time be applied according back value towards purchasing other Slaves for the said George Carter property and are to be seated on the said land. The other third part of the profits of the said land and Slaves during such his Son George’s minority I hereby give to my Son Robert as an increment to his particular case in the Improving of this land and Slaves settled as before. And also to [illegible] his natural affection unto every possible endeavor for the Educating of his said Child who he has said by my leisure tho constant application as Capable of a very good Instruction and notwithstanding until lately the door of his knowledge has not been attempted to be opened back by the common faced modes of Instruction not justifiable to all my youthful {grammar?]. However this Devise to be subject to the contingency following (That is) Provided that my Grandson George shall live to the age of Twenty one years or be married by the Consent of his father. In such such case only the Division of land and slaves as willed to him [fold - half illegible] out of the profits to be made of the said Estate to him and his heirs forever. but if my Grandson George does not live to the age of twenty one years or marry as aforesaid then I give the said land and Slaves together with their Increase and addition to be made to the Estate by the profits ordered to be laid out as before to the next younger Son to George Carter that may be born to my son Robert who shall be alive at such time of the said George’s death before he comes to age or marries as aforesaid, and to the heirs forever of such Child. And in case one such Child shall be born alive to take this Estate according to the articles intended them then the land so settled with Slaves and their increase together with whatever part of their profit, which shall or shall not be applied as before directed I give to be divided between the two second Sons that may be alive at that time of my Sons Landon

      [page 7]
      and John Carter and their heirs forever And in Case no such second Sons shall be alive at the intended time of their Limitation the said Land to descend one half of it to my son Robert and his heirs forever the other half to my sons Landon and John and their heirs forever & The whole Slaves as before to be divided as I have before directed Robert to have one half and Landon and John the other half.

      Item 12. I give and bequeath unto my Trustees before mentioned to each of them Twenty pounds Current money to be disposed of as they shall severally please, which I devise my Sons to pay them respectively in the Same proportion in which they are to pay their Sisters’ Legacies.

      Item 13. I give and bequeath to my son Robert all my household furniture at Sabine hall including my Book Cases and Books together with my Chariot and harness and also all my Horses Mares Cattle Sheep and hoggs in the County of Richmond or elsewhere that shall at the time of my death be either on the estate or other plantations which I have hereby given him As I have already given to my sons Landon and John Carter all the Slaves of every kind on my Bull Run plantations when [illegible] and then up to them which were to have been inserted in the Gift before mentioned of the Slaves delivered into their possession. Therefore I do not intend that my Trustees shall make any division of this part of my personal estate. [One line scratched out]. Neither do I desire there shall be any Appraisement of my personal Estate.
      Determining so likely that all and every part of my Estate either as real personal shall be subject in my Sons hands to whom it is given to the payment of what debts I may owe at my death and to the Legacies disposed of by this my Will in the same proportion that i have given my Slaves to them.

      Item 14. I constitute and appoint my three sons Robert Landon and John Executors of this my last Will and Testament.

      Item 15. It is my will and desire that my said three sons Robert Landon & John before any division and allotment of my Estate by my Trustees be made as aforesaid every of them enter into separate Bonds with good security to my said Trustees with condition for the payment of the Proportion with which these several Estates hereby given are intended to be charged by this my Will either of my debts or my Legacies such bonds I desire may be recorded in some County Court.
