      DUNCANS IN WESTMORELAND CO. VA MIXED RECORDS 1653-1859

      Will of George Turberville, Cople Parish, Westmoreland Co. VA, 16 Oct. 1740. My poor daughter Elizabeth Turberville has from her infancy been afflicted with convulsions fits ... so that she is never likely to make any considerable figure in this life and her condition being such that the more estate she has the redier she will be liable to ruin and distraction, therefore 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 Francis his daughter the mother of the said Elizabeth by which opinion they all agree that I (surviving my said wife) have absolute right to the said slaves, whereupon for the above reasons I devise all the slaves now living mentioned in the deed to my dear little son John Turberville and his heirs. I will that my daughter Elizabeth Turberville live in my dwelling house and have the Tom called hers as usual? in my lifetime, and I give her the use of my negroe woman Moll who always takes care and looks after her to continue to do the same, and if said Moll dies, my executors to choose any negroe woman out of my estate most suitable to look after and take care of my daughter Elizabeth Turberville, and I desire my dear wife Martha Turberville and my execs. to take all the care they can of my said poor unhappy daughter Elizabeth. As my daughter Elizabeth Turberville is seized in fee of sundry tracts of land, the rents of which I reckon be more than sufficient to find her clothing, ... I think it needless to give or leave her any more than before in this will. As I have exchanged lands with Blanchflower Dunken and John Locus for which deeds have not been executed to them, therefore I do hereby empower my executors to make the deeds. I have agreed with Robert Thomas? and John Cannady to lease to each of them for three lives 150 acres of my tract of land in Prince William Co. by me called Golden Grove, on which they are now seated, and also to William Shortridge, I do agree to leave him 100 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 disappointed, I do hereby empower my exec. to execute leases to them severally for the lands aforesaid. I give 20 sterling to be sent to Great Brittain in course goods and to be distributed here to the poor of Cople Parish by my execs. I give to the use of Nominy Church in Cople Parish 10 sterling ... I give to my wife Martha Turberville have leave of my dwelling house together with the lands, stock, slaves and plantations adj., viz, mill quarter and Mochotick quarter, together with the use and benefit of my water grist mill, to use it in the frugal manner as usual to be done in my lifetime for the benefit and support of herself and my children, and while she remains my widow and no longer, and after the marriage I then desire she may have no more estate than her dower and thirds as the law allows, and this I think reasonable as my dear wife has a right to a considerable in support in Great Brittain by the will of her mother Mrs. Martha Lee of which I have been benefited 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 has been a kind and good wife to me. I doubt not but she will continue to be such a mother to my dear children after my decease and as my dear wife has great merrit and will have no dispicable fortune I doubt not but that she will have admirers enough. I therefore pray God to advise her in a good choice of 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. I give to my daughter Lettice Turberville 600 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 the age of 21 years which shall first happen. I also give my daughter Lettice Billanda's mulatto girl Hannah and Moll's girl Sue and four Negroes girls or women to be purchased by my executor out of a Negro Ship as soon as conveniently they can after my said daughter shall marry, the four negroes to be as sound as can be adjudged of her own age. I give all my books of every sort, ... to my son John Turberville and I desire him to make the best use of them he possibly can by reading and studying of them. I give my son John Turberville all my silver plate ... and my seal gold ring with my coat of arms and all my pictures in the house at the time of my death. That my dear children have the best education they can suitable to their degree and circumstance and virtuously brought up in the principle of the Church of England ... but that not any of them be sent out of VA for schooling or education not even my son John ... I give to my son John Turberville all my estate both real and personal not otherwise disposed of. Appoint my friends Col. Henry Lee of Westmoreland County, Landon Carter Esq. and my godson Mr. John Tayloe son of the Honbl. John Tayloe Esq. of Richmond Co. executors. Whereas Colonel Henry Ashton by his deed of gift to me and his daughter Frances my late wife decreed? soon after our intermarriage conveyed and settled upon us and the heirs of issue of our marriage, two pieces of land he had some time before that purchased of John Hobin? and John Owens, which gift to us made created a fee tail to the aforesaid land which after the death of my said wife and my intermarriage with my second wife ... docking the said entail ... and after the death of the said Colo. Ashton, John Hobson son and heir of the said John Hobson produced a defecance? bond of Col. Ashton ... (more on title to this land) ... I have been obliged to come to the best terms I could with John Hobson the younger ... have lost all my improvements and for that I have been lately advised by the learned in the law that the other land as aforesaid purchased by the said Ashton of the said John Owens is also entailed in frank marriage by Waltor English on his daughter Anne and Henry Owens deceased father of the decd. John Owens and the heir of their body begotten, so that I daily expect to loose that too. Therefore ... the 1,000 acres of land in Prince William Co. be seized entailed and settled to the same uses which these lands never should remain so entailed ... /s/ George Turberville. Wit. John Attwell. Memorandum, since making my last will, my dear wife is again big with child, wherefore it becomes my paternal and indispensable? duty to make suitable ... make this codicil ... if the child be a boy, all my land on Flattick and Salsburg Plum? River in Prince William Co. containing in the whole between four and five thousand acres and also all the land I hold in King George and Stafford Cos. between Horsepen Run of Rappa. River and Rocky Run of Potomack (also cattle, etc.), in trust until age 21; but if the child be a girl, 450 and three young negro women about her own age to be purchased by my executors ...; but if the child does not reach age 21, then the original will to stand good as it was at first. 30 March 1741, /s/ G. Turberville; wit. Thomas Lee, Henry Lee, Alexander Parker?, B. Harnett. Court 30 March 1742, will presented by Col. Henry Lee, proved by John Attwell witness, and the codicil by Henry Lee and Bartholomew Harnett, certificate issued for obtaining probate; rec. 12 April 1742.
