I John Rose of the County of Westmoreland do make this my last will and testament in manner and form following.
First, I give to my dear wife all my estate real and personal for and during her widowhood, except as after mentioned.
Whereas my brother Alexander Rose and my sister have executed deeds to me for their parts or quarters of land inherited from our brother Dr. Robert Rose, solely for the purpose of making sale the said lands, I do hereby devise and direct that my executors may proceed to sell and convey the said lands as soon as they can be advantageously sold and do make an equal division with my brother and two sisters according to the intention of our agreement after deducting the charges and expenses which have accrued for taxes and such expenses as may attend the sales thereof do request that my executor may divide the fourth part of the money arising from such sales equally between my daughter Mildred Rose and my son Walter Rose and my sons part to be laid out by his guardian in land and the rents and profits arising thereon be appropriated for the maintenance and education of my said son. My daughter to direct the application of her money.
Item I give to my daughter Milley Rose after the death or marriage of her mother [Negroes] Gassasway, Hannah, Rachel, Lucy, Charity and all their increase with all my household furniture remaining after the death of his mother.
Whereas I did for the immediate accommodation and comfort of my son in law William Robinson, make certain proposals on 26 September 1800 which he agreed to, both which could not be confirmed by reason of his non-age, I do hereby devise to him and his heirs forever all the lands and tennements proposed to be given to him which will appear by the copy of the instrument annexed to this will and marked proposals to William Robinson, provided he the said William Robinson shall immediately on his arrival at the lawful age, convey unto his mother for and during her life all the lands which he has therein stipulates to convey to me, vizt; the tracts called Tray and Turnbull as dower lands for her life, 87 acres more or less on lower side of Mattox and about 200 acres more or less on the upper side of Mattox and in the White Oak Swamp. Also to her for her life and after her death to my son Walter Rose in fee simple; but if my son in law William Robinson shall refuse to confirm such proposals, I then give all the lands and tennements propose to be given to him in exchange, to my dear wife for her life and after her death to my son Walter Rose and his heirs forever. And I do hereby authorize my dear wife to convey the said property to my son in law William Robinson whenever he shall be ready to ratify the exchange which I propose to him by the said instrument.
Item I give to my son Walter Rose after the death of his mother, the tract of land whereon I live together with all slaves and other property not disposed of by this my will to him and his heirs forever and if either of my daughters or sons should die before the age of 21 the survivors shall take all and if it should happen that both my children should die in the lifetime of their mother under age and without being married I desire the reversion of my lands to my son-in-law William Robinson and all slaves and personal estate remaining at the death of my wife to be equally divided between my two daughters in law, Anne W. Rose and Margaret McCarty.
And whereas it will appear that the estate of William Robinson would be indebted to me a considerable balance, I do hereby release and exonerates the said William Robinson from the same, as I do not wish that charges for my services and commission should constitute a claim against said children of my dear wife having consciously discharged my duty towards them, the only return I ask is that they may extend equal care and affection to my infant son.

Lastly, I do hereby nominate and appoint my dear wife, Dr. Henry Rose, my son-in-law William Robinson and my friend Laurence Berry of King George County, executors to this my last will and do requests that they will give my son-in-law William Robinson all my books with this request that he will permit my son Charles Walter to have the use of such as he may want at school, where it is my desire he should be Until he shall be 18 years of age and that he may pursue son profession best suited to his genius and I do hereby appoint my said Executers guardians to my children. I direct that my executors sell upon such credit as they think best [Negro] Moses the shoemaker, my horse Nowal, and such horses or stocks that they think may be spared from my plantations for the payment of my debts.
