Wills

In the name of God amen the fifth day of August in the seventeenth year of the reign of our sovereign Lord Charles by the grace of God King of England Scotland France and Ireland defender of the faith etc.  I Peter Naylor of Coppull in the county of Lancaster shoemaker being somewhat aged sick and weak in body but of good and perfect memory I praise almighty God for the same utterly renouncing and revoking all former wills and testaments by me heretofore made do hereby constitute ordain and make this my last will and testament in manner and form following.  First and principally I commend and commit my soul into the hands of the almighty my creator redeemer and sanctifier hoping assuredly by his death and passion to inherit everlasting life. And my body I commit to Christian burial at Standish in my ancestors burial place there to remain until the day of the resurrection of all men at which day I hope to arise from mortality to immortality and then to reign with my savior Jesus Christ amongst elected and chosen people in his glorious kingdom of heaven for ever more.  And for those temporal goods which the lord of his great mercy have bestowed upon me I give and bequeath them as followeth.  And first my will and mind is that all my debts shall be first taken forth paid and discharged out of the whole of my goods and then my will and mind is that all the rest and the residue of my said goods shall be divided into three equal parts.  Of the first part I give unto Margaret my wife the second part I give equally amongst all my children (Thomas Naylor my eldest son only excepted) and the third and last part I reserve to myself out of the which third and last part my will and mind is that my funeral charges and legacies shall be first taken forth and discharged and then all the rest and residue of the said third and last part I give equally amongst all my three daughters Elizabeth Anne and Marie Naylor.  Item I do hereby constitute ordaine and make the said Margaret my wife my sole and only executrix of this my last will and testament hoping that she will truly execute and perform the same as my trust is in her above all others.  Item I do hereby constitute ordaine and make Thomas Naylor of Standish in the said county husbandman supervisor of this my last will and testament hoping that he will truly execute and perform the same as my trust is in him above all others.  In witness whereof I have caused this same to be published and have hereunto put my hand and seal the day and year first above written 1641.
