      STAFFORD COUNTY VA WILL BOOK O; 1748-1767; THE ANTIENT PRESS pp. 506-510 Hooe's Will

Imprimis I give to my Wife ANN HOOE, my cross roads Land that I purchased of Mr. RICHARD BERNARD, the Lands I purchased from JOHN SIMPSON and that Land which I purchased from THOMAS STUBBLEFIELD to hold .. the three parts of land unto my wife Ann during her natural life.
      Item I give unto my Daughters ANNE HOOE, SARAH HOOE & SUSANNA HOOE all the Land which I hold in the County of Fauquier .. and heirs. And I desire that my Exrs. herein mentioned, may so soon after my Death as conveniently they can, make an Equal & Impartial division of the sd lands among them, that each may hold her part in Severalty.
      Item I give to my son SEYMOUR HOOE after the death of his Mother the cross road land above devised to her for life .. to him & heirs.
      Item I give to my son GERRARD HOOE after the Death of his Mother, the Lands purchased of John Simpson and devised as above to her for life, to him and heirs upon this condition that he yields due obedience to the Injunction in this my last Will & Testament hereinafter Expressed, and I give in like maner unto my said son Gerrard after the Death of his Mother the Lands I purchased from Thomas Stubblefield. to hold to him .. heirs.
      Item I give to my Daughter MARY HOOE the three Slaves following, to wit the girl called MILLY THOMAS, another called MARY THOMAS and a third called Lenny. And I also give to my said Daughter, 250 pounds Virginia Currency, the same being due & payable to me by bond bearing Date the 13th Day of January anno Dom: 1762, together with the Interest on the said bond arising, which bond I have already transfered unto my said Daughter by Indorsation the better to enable at the time the same becomes payable to sue for and recover the same in her own name. And my will is, that at her day of Marriage, or so soon as she shall strive at the age of 18 which ever shall first happen, the said sum of 250 pounds with the Interest incurred shall be paid to her. And my desire is, that my Exrs. continue the money at Interest till then. But if my said Daughter should die before Marriage, or before she attains age of 18, and if my Son GERRARD shall be content with the provision I have made for him in this my last will, & support the disposition I have made of my Estate, to remain uncontroserted, then, and in such case do I give the said three Slaves, the principal and Interest due by the bond aforesaid unto my sons, GERRARD HOOE and SEYMOUR HOOE, and my Daughters ANN, SARAH & SUSANNA HOOE, equally to be divided between them. But my will is, that if my said Daughter MARY shall happen to die, before marriage or age of 18, my son Gerrard, not content, should endeavour to interrupt any of the Devisees in this my will mentioned in the peaceable enjoyment of what is herein devised to them, I do exclude him from receiving any proportion of the said 3 slaves, or money due, or to grow on & upon the bond aforesaid. And I desire and direct that the sume shall pass & go to my son Seymour Hooe soley, and if he should happen to die before he hath received the same, the division shall be made only between my Daughters Ann, Sarah and Susanna. And as my Daughter Mary is now of very ten-der years, I do direct, that the charges, Expense of her cloathing, Schooling & maintenance in such manner as my Executors shall think reasonable shall be defrayed by my other Daughters Ann, Sarah and Susanna until Mary shall attain her age of 18, or, until she is married.
      Item I give to my wife ANN HOOE one third part of all my slaves not already given & of all my other personal Estate during her natural life, and my will is, that she may herself, make the use of the third part of the Slaves.
      Item I give unto my wife my riding chair, and any two of my horses, as she shall make choice of.
      Item I give all the residue of my slaves & personal Estate to my Sons Gerrard and Seymour & to my Daughters Ann, Sarah and Susanna to be equally divided between then, and after the Death of their Mother the slaves and other Estate herein before given to her for life, I give unto my Sons Gerrard and Seymour and my Daughters Ann, Sarah and Susanna to be in like manner divided between them and that no Contrariety of Opinion be maintained upon this my will, but, that I may be clearly understood. I do declare and it is my will and intention that my son Gerrard shall take no other part of my Slaves, or personal Estate, under colour or pretence of his being heir at Law, or in Taile then what is in this my Will devised to him, and that all the slaves whereof I die possessed, shall pass, go and be divided in the manner by me, herein before mentioned & directed, and not otherwise. And if notwithstanding this my express intention and direction, my son Gerrard should pretend to claim any other part of the slaves whereof I die possessed, other than such part as above is given unto him either as heir at Law or in taile, or under any other preceipt or title whatsoever and thereby Interrupts the Several disposition I have made, or any of them, to the prejudice of his Mother, Brother or Sisters, then and in such case, my will is that he be precluded from taking enjoying or possessing any thing by this Will. And the Land I purchased of JOHN SIMPSON which I have already given to my wife for life, & after her Death to my son Gerrard in ffee Simple as well as the Land purchased from THOMAS STUBBLEFIELD & which I have given to my Wife for life remainder to my son Gerrard intaile, shall never be the property of my son Gerrard, but after the death of my Wife, I give the land purchased of John Simpson as that purchased of Thomas Stubblefield unto my Son Seymour Hooe in the following manner. That is to say, to my son Seymour, and if he lives until he arrives at age of 21 years. then to hold the land in Fee Simple forever, but if he dies before he comes to that age, leaving issue of his body lawfully begotten then to such heirs. But if my Son Seymour shall happen to die, under the age of 21, leaving no issue, then I give the aforesaid two tracts of land to my Daughters ANN SARAH and SUSANNA .. and heirs to be equally divided between them.
      Item it is my will & accordingly I do direct, that amongst my Daughter ANN HOOE'S slaves, which by this will she shall he entitled to, the Negroe girl called Frank be of the number and in my Daughter Sarah's share, the negroe girl called Lydia and in my Daughter Susanna's share the Negroe girl called Sukey be of the number.
      Item as I do not think my Daughter Mary's share of my Estate equal to that of my other children, to increase it therefore a little the more, I give unto my Daughter Mary one other slave named WINNEY THOMAS, and I expect my other children will not think so small a Dimuintion from each of their parts will be Unjust. But their Devise is nevertheless not to be valid if my son Gerrd. Hooe Occasions any alterations in this my will. Item I do order that the several Slaves willed already by me to my Daughters Ann, Sarah, Susanna and Mary, and unto my son Seymour as well their Immediate share after my Death by those which shall come to them by the Death of their Mother when that shall happen, shall never
      at any rate pass, or go to my son Gerrard if he shall or will quietly acquissee, and in all things Submitt, to the several dispositions I have herein made of my Estate. But, that if either my son Seymour or my daughters Ann, Sarah, Susanna or Mary shall die without making any Disposition of their respective shares of the said Slaves, and leaving no Issue directly to share the same, the part, of such child so dying, shall, so often as it shall happen, be directly divided among the Survivors of them or their legal representatives other than my son Gerrard their Brother.
      Item the Lands whereon I now live, called HOOES FERRY, I have taken no notice of in this my will, as I know the same is an Estate taile, neither have I said anything about the Lands whereon THOMAS CARVER now lives as Tenant to me, & which in the will of my ffather, was called the Plantation whereon JOHN BARTON lived, because they will Pass to my son Gerrard as heir in taile. My will is that my Estate be not appraised, Lastly I appoint, my Wife Ann Hooe, my son Gerrard Hooe, JOHN ALEXANDER JUNR., JOHN STUART, JOHN WASHINGTON, GEORGE JOHNSTON, & FRANCIS DADE of Fairfax County and WALTER WILLIAMSON, Executors of this my last will & Testament .. 8th October 1763.
