      Charles County Maryland Will Book B-1, 1782-1785; Page 368. The Revd Isaac Campbell's Will.
      This Dec 4, 1778, I, Isaac Campbell of CC, Clerk, enjoying at this present time of writing, my wonted understanding and judgment, but remembering the uncertainty of life, think fit to make this my will.
      To my wife - having the use & disposal of a landed estate lying on the NE side of Rroad Run in Prince William County, Virginia, conveyed by the late Colo Charles Carter's executors in trust to the Revd James Scott, his son Capt. James Scott, & Cuthbert Bullet, esq, I give my wife the use of the third part of sd estate during her natural life, upon the following proviso: upon receiving 300 £sterling from her father as her fortune, I passed my bond, securing to her the use of the sd money during her natural life, I being at that time possessed of no estate that could otherwise support her in case of my prior death. She will relinquish all claims under sd bond & accept the use of the third part of the sd estate in lieu thereof. I give her also the use of the third part of my plantation in Maryland, whereon I now live, & the use of the third part of my personal estate, all during her natural life. If my executors think this will be insufficient to supply her with a decent maintenance, the interest, at 3 £s of the afd £300 may be used, but not otherwise. If my wife thinks fit to choose rather a legal provision than what I have now made for her, by which she may perhaps claim the afd £300, to be put in her own hands, my will is that my Maryland plantation afd, at least two thirds of it, be sold, and if the money arising is less than £300, the defect to be paid out of the rents of the afd Broad Run Tract, to which, it being conveyed in trust only, my wife can, I believe, have no legal right of dower. The £300 should only be paid to my wife if she can give sufficient security that the principal, at her demise, be repaid to my estate for the common benefit of our children.
      To my 10 children - all the afd tract of land on Broad Run, to be divided among them in the following manner, viz, as that parcel of land contains about 3330 acres, my will is that 2100 acres lying upon Broad Run be laid off by a straight line running parallel to a line joining the two following boundaries of sd land, the one near the point between the confluence of the Run called the North fork & sd Broad Run; & the other higher up sd Broad Run where the dividing line between Colo Charles Carter of Corotoman [Corrotoman, Lancaster Co, VA], his land & mine terminates at sd Broad Run, and the whole land being thus divided into 2 parts. My will is that the afd land, 2100 acres lying upon the Broad Run, be subdivided into six equal parts by straight lines running parallel to the afd line that divides the afd Colo Carter's land from mine. And the sd 2100 acres being thus subdivided into 6 equal parts or lots, each of which will contain about 350 acres, I give unto each of my 6 sons, William, Gustavus Brown, Isaac, James, Richard Henry, & John, one of sd lots, to be chosen by them according to their seniority. The lots may not be equally valuable in respect to the soil and the improvements on them. Cash payments between brothers are to be made to equalize the value of the lots. If any of my sons die without surviving issue, if they die in the married state, a legal dower being reserved for the widow of such son, the afd 2100 acres is to be equally partitioned between the surviving sons. The remaining part of sd land not already bequeathed, containing about 1230 acres, is to be divided in the most commodious manner, in 4 equal parts or lots, each if which will contain about 307N acres, each lot going to each of my 4 daughters, Jean, Frances, Mary, and Cecilia Ann, to be chosen by them according to their seniority, but with the following provisos - with regard to my eldest daughter Jean, who is wife to Walter, the eldest son to Mr. John winter, who previously to his son's marriage with my daughter, signified to me his intention of giving or leaving to his sd son Walter the neck of land called Westwood, whereon he now lives; but whereas sd Walter has no Present title to sd neck of land that. I know of, and may be, by the course of contingencies, never have any; & whereas Walter is invested with no property known to me, by which means, if he dies, my daughter Jean might be left destitute of a place of habitation. Therefore, if sd Walter shall be invested with such a title to sd neck of land, Jean will have a right of dower to sd neck of land. I give Jean one of the afd lots of about 307.5 acres, as she or her husband chooses, to belong to her until Walter shall be invested with a title to the afd neck of land. I give Jean's lot to my executors, in trust for her. If any of my daughters die without surviving issue, my will is that the afd 1230 acres be divided again into as many parts as there are surviving daughters. In case of the death of all sd sons without surviving issue, the afd 2100 acres, shall be divided into as many equal parts as there shall be surviving daughters. Likewise, if all my daughters die without surviving issue, then the afd 1230 acres shall be divided into as many equal parts as there shall be surviving sons. If my wife accepts the provision afd made for her maintenance & will suffer her right of dower in the plantation in Maryland whereon I now live, to be sold, my will is that the sd plantation be sold to the best advantage, and the interest of the third part of the money arising from such sale is to be appropriated to my wife during her natural life. The other two thirds may be applied for raising convenient buildings on whatsoever part of my land in Virginia she may choose for her residence. Whatever sum can be saved, I would have applied towards the education of such of my younger sons as my executors shall find capable of making improvement in the learned languages, mathematics, philosophy, &c. My lawful debts being paid out of my personal estate, I will that two thirds of the remainder be equally divided among all my children, and the other third upon the death of my wife. For the Broad Run land to be divided would interfere with my wife's third part; therefore without her consent first obtained, the required divisions must be postponed until her demise. If any part of the shares belonging to my younger children can be saved, after defraying the charges of their maintenance & education, I think it ought to be put out at interest for their benefit, to be paid to them when they arrive at legal age, together with the interest.
      Guardians to my minor children: my wife and my executors. executors: Doctor Gustavus Richard Brown, Mr. William Warren, my present agent, and my eldest son, William. Signed - Isc Campbell. Wit - John N. Smoot, Hendlay Smoot, Walter McPherson Jr.
      Probated on Jul 24, 1784 by the oath of William Campbell, one of the executors and by the oaths of John N. Smoot & Hendly Smoot, two of the witnesses.
