    • Copy of Will of John Smith of Felix Neck

      I, John Smith, of Marthas Vineyard being in perfect health and soundness of
      mind both in body and mind, doe make my last Will and Testament, this 14th
      day of February in the year 1670 as followeth: ?

      Imprimis! I give unto my two sons John and Samuel, all my lands on the
      Island of Nantucket, with all privileges thereto belonging to be equally divided
      between; they paying their two sisters, Debora and Abigail, unto either of them
      five pounds, to be paid within one year after their entrance and possession

      Item: I give unto my sonne Philip my land and house at Marthas Vineyard
      with all privileges, belonging to the aforesaid land, to be his after the decease
      of his mother; and in the meantime after my decease, my will is that the said
      Philip my son shall enjoy two thirds of the said lands and privileges.

      The true intent and meaning of this my gift unto my sonne is that because
      the wise disposing hand of God hath ordered that my said sonne at present is
      impotent in his understanding, that his weakness shall not alienate the land
      from my family: therefore my will is that the lands and priviliges as afore
      mentioned shall be thus disposed, namely if the said Philip shall marry and
      have issue the lands are given to him and his heirs forever, but if the said philip
      shall dy without issue then it shall at his decease fall to the next heir in the

      And further I give to my sonne Philip what drawing cattle are in or being on
      the land, or living aforesaid, at my decease, with carts, plows and all furniture
      belonging to the same; and also two cows and liberty to dwell in the house all
      the time of his mother's life.

      Item: I make Debora, my wife, whole executor of this my last will and I de-
      sire and appoint my loving friends Mr. Thomas Mahew, and Isaac Robinson,
      at the Vineyard, and Mr. Edward Starbrick, and Thomas Macy, of Nantucket
      overseers of this my last will and testament and in case one or more of these
      friends dy, or leave the country, and their places vacant then the survivers or
      remainders, shall have liberty to choose others to supply, and are desired so to
      doe, for the confirmation hereof I the said testator have hereunto set my hand
      the day and year above written.


      Thomas Macy junr.
      Sarah Macy.
      Mary Starbrick.
