      Fauntleroy, Judith, of St. Stephen's Parish
      W. W. 25 January 1773---W. P. 14 March 1774
      My late husband Griffin Fauntleroy made his will about a year before his death, and in consequence thereof his daughter Sarah born about four months after his death, was left wholly unprovided for by his will, and it being my duty to advance her as will as any of the other children, I do give her the following slaves which descended to me by the death of my mother Mrs. Sarah Edwards of Lancaster County, vizt: Steven a man, Stephen a boy, Mima Frank and her child Lucy, Charles, Alice, Fanney, James and Troy and their increase, and she not to be liable for any payments of my debts. If my daughter Sarah should die before being married or otherwise disposing of the said slaves, they are to be equally divided between my son John Fauntleroy, and my daughter Catharine Fauntleroy, and their heirs.
      Whereas my late husband gave me one third part of his slaves to dispose of after my death to such of his children as I should think fit, if I would convey the land in Farnham Parish, Richmond County which I held under my late father. John Swan to his son Swan Fauntleroy, whereas my son Swan Fauntleroy departed this life an infant without issue a very short time after my husband death and before I could convey the said tract to him. I have conveyed the said tract to my eldest son Griffin Fauntleroy, the heir at law to my son Swan Fauntleroy. I give the above slaves to my son John, to wit:Travis, Betty, Sarah, George, and Cyrus, and also the slaves that descended to me on the death of my mother, to wit:Nanney, and Anthony. I exchanged with me for the negro Emanuel.
      To my daughter Katharine Fauntleroy-negroes Great Dick, Sylla, Great Alice, Mille, Mary, Dinah, and Abraham, which I hold under my husbands will, and I also give her my negro Grace which descended to me from my mother. If she should die without being married or disposing of the said slaves given to her, the negroes to be equally divided between my son John, and my daughter Sarah. I also give my daughter Katharine two beds and furniture, one dozen chairs, a table and a dressing table and looking glass, intending that each of my daughters should have furniture for furnishing a room for each of them.
      Son John to have two mirror glasses that are in the hall and dining room.
      Rest of my estate real and personal to my son John, and daughters Catharine and Sarah.
      If my son John, or daughter Catharine, should set up any claim whatsoever to defeat this my will in favour of my daughter Sarah, I then give to my son Griffin what I have given to John and Katharine.
      My son John, and daughter Katharine, to pay all my debts and funeral expenses out of the estate I have given them, and if they refuse I give the negroes and other legacies bequeathed to them to my daughter Sarah, and if she cannot take them, to my son Griffin.
