I, Robert Slye of Bushwood in St. Clements Manor in St. Mary's Co, MD, merchant .. I want to be buried beyond the Creek at Matopeny, as near as may be to those of my children already gone before me.
First, my just debts are to be paid.
To my little daughters, Elizabeth and Francis, my tract of land called Rich Neck, lying between Matopeny and Bushwood, reputed to be about 500 acres, to be equally divided between them when either is married. But if one dies unmarried, then the surviving sister to have the whole, but in default thereof, to be divided among the rest of my surviving children after the death of both daughters, if they die without lawful heirs. Also to these daughters, 30,000 lbs of tobacco each, out of my estate, and that the same be shipped out of England the 1st next years after my death, by 10,000 each year, and consigned to Henry Meese, and my kinsman, Mr. Strangeways Mudd of London, for the use of my said children, to be paid to them at age 16 or marriage, or if one dies, the survivor gets it all. If they both die, the rest of my children get the tobacco.
To my youngest son Robert, my plantation called Lapworth, together with Norwood, Lapworth Lodge, and Clear Doubt, 3 other tracts adjoining thereunto. I also give him all my Negroes now living at Lapworth, and also my other servants living there, for the time they have to serve, and likewise, all my cattle, horses, mares, swine, or what else shall be found belonging to said plantation at the time of my death. But if my said son dies before reaching age 18 and without lawful heirs, then my land, Negroes, and stock, to descend to the rest of my surviving children, to be equally divided between them.
To my wife Susannah Slye, for and in consideration of her dower and in full satisfaction thereof, half of all my cattle, swine, horses, mares, and sheep, except for the stock belonging to Lapworth given to my son Robert. I also give my wife half of all my Negroes belonging to Bushwood and half of the servants belonging thereto, for the time they have to serve, and also half of all the household goods or goods for merchandise, that are ub my custody, belonging to me. And she is to have 30,000 lbs of tobacco paid her out of my debts, within 2 years after my death, and also to have the dwelling house and half the other housing belonging to Bushwood, with the use of half the land belonging thereunto during her life, and afterwards, the same to descend to my son Gerrard (that is to say) the land and houses only.
To my eldest son, Gerrard Slye, the rest of my estate.
Executor - my son Gerard.
If Gerard died before age or without heirs, my surviving children to get my estate, and the next oldest to be executor.
I hereby request and entreat my loving friends, Mr. Thomas Notley, my brother, Mr. Justinian Gerard, my brother, Mr. Nehemiah Blackstone, and my loving friend, Mr. Benjamin Folly to be overseers and leossees in trust of my will, to see and cause the same to be fully executed.
My wife is appointed sole guardian of the children. If my wife dies, then the children to go to my brother, Mr. Nehemiah Blackistone and my loving friend, Mr. Benjamin Folly.
If all my children die underage and without issue, and after the death of my wife, I give Bushwood, being about 1000 acres, to my brothers-in-law, Thomas Gerard and John Gerard, and my sister-in-law, Mary Gerard. And Rich Neck upon St. Clements Manor goes to the eldest son of my dear sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Russell of London. And Lapworth to my nephew, Timothy Cooper, and Norwood, Lapworth Lodge, and Clear Doubt to my nephew, Thomas Cooper, both of Springfield in New England.
