"In the name of God, Amen. I, Thomas HAZZARD, of Newtown, in Queens
County, "being in a very weak condition." My executors are to pay all
debts, and may sell my lot or tract of land and meadow adjoining Fish
Mill Creek. My wife Mercy is to have during her widowhood the use of 1/2
of my plantation on which I now dwell. If she marries, then she is to
have £200. I leave to my son Thomas my negro boy "Will," "for his right
as first born." All the rest of my estate is to go to my five sons,
Thomas, Daniel, Samuel, John, and Jonathan. I appoint my wife Mary, and
my brother, James Hazzard, and my brother-in-law, Daniel Betts, executors.
Dated August 31, 1733. (No witnesses given.) Proved, November 3, 1733."
