In the name of God Amen. I William Low of Coppull in the County of Lancaster, being sick and weak of body, but of perfect mind and memory, thanks be to Almighty God therefore, for ye settling of my temporal concerns, do make & ordain this my last will and ttestament.
Impris My mind & will is that all my just debts & funeral expences & ye charge of proveing this my last will & testamt and costs incident thereunto, be paid and discharged at ye discretion of my executors. And then I give to my son Edward the sum of five pounds & to his son Ralph five shillings. Item I give to my son Thomas five pounds, & to Edwd. Willm. & Margret his children five shillings apiece. Item I give to my daughter Mary five pounds, & to Elizabeth her daughter five shillings. Item I give to my daughter Ann five pounds, & to Margret her daughter five shillings. And my mind and will is that ye several legacies given and bequeathed to my several grandchildren, be paid to their respective parents within twelve months after my decease. And I likewise order, that if any of my children be not content & satisfy'd with ye legacies bequeathed to them as aforesaid, but give my executors trouble or disrurbance, that such child or children shall have nothing. Item all the rest residue & remaining part of my goods & personal estate, bonds, bills, money or whatever I have, I give to Margret my loveing wife. Item and lastly I nominate & appoint Margret my said wife and John Abbott of Welch Whittle in ye said county to be executors of this my last will & testament, hopeing they will see the same well & truly performed and fulfill'd as my trust is in them. In witness whereof I have hereunto sett my hand & seal ye seventeenth day of August, in ye year of our Lord Christ 1727.
