      Opie, Lindsy
      W. W. 12 January 1785---W. P. 15 March 1785
      Son Thomas Opie-all my land in "Cherry Point," and the fifty one acres in "Matapony Neck" which I purchased of James Lewis Junr., provided he conveys to my son Hierome Opie all his right to the lands in "Hacks Neck" called "Brickhouse," which he claims under the will of William Lancaster, after the death of his son Joseph Lancaster. He to convey same as soon as he arrives to lawful age. If he does not, he is to only have five shillings of my estate and no more, and the above lands to go to my son Hierome. if by some reason, my son Thomas is not able to convey a legal title to said lands, then to my son Hierome I give my plantation in "Cherry Point" called the "Brickhouse," containing one hundred and fifteen acres, together with a third part of my land in "Matapony Neck," to my son Hierome.
      As some people think that the right to William Lancaster's land is vested in my daughter Sarah Opie, contrary to my opinion. If that shall be, I give my son Thomas the land I now live on,con-taining two hundred and thirty acres, and ninty and a half acres adjoining which I purchased of John Fauntleroy, and the remaining two thirds of the land in "Mattapony."
      Son Hierome L. Opie-all my lands in Richmond County, and two slaves Lucy, and Mima.
      If either of my two sons Thomas, or Hierome, dies without lawful issue, then the survivor of them give my lands in Richmond County, to my son Leroy Opie,
      Son Leroy Opie-to be educated at the expense of my estate.
      Son Hierome-to have an education equal to a minister or doctor. My intentions are that Hierome L. Opie is to enjoy the land called the "Brickhouse," which all my first children living appear to have an eaual right to by the will of William Lancaster, dec'd. My children by my first venture are to convey their right to said land when they attain lawful age, and if they refuse, to have five shillings and no more of my estate. They are:-Thomas Opie, Sarah Opie, Elizabeth Opie, and Susanna Opie.
      Daughter Sarah Opie-mulatto girl. Esther, and her future increase.
      Daughter Elizabeth Opie-negro boy Biliy(son of young Jane).
      Daughter Susanna Opie-negro boy Vincent.

      Rest of my estate, both real and personal to be equally divided among my eight children, vizt: Sarah Opie, Thomas Opie, Elizabeth Opie, Susanna Opie, Hierome Lindsay Opie, Leroy Opie, Anne Opie, and Janette McAdam Opie. If any of my first children refuse to convey their title to William Lancaster's land, to my son Hierome L. Opie they shall forfeit one half of the slaves they receive under my will to my son Hierome L. Opie,
      Friends Peter Cox, Hudson Muse, and William Harding, executors.
