This is the last will and testament of me, JAMES GREENWOOD of Deanroyd in Walsden, farmer.
As to £50 bequeathed by JOHN UTLEY of Lee in Langfield, yeoman, deceased, to MARY, his daughter, who I intermarried to my second wife (which said legacy lyeth in the hands of his son, JOHN UTLEY of Lee). I give that identical sum of £50 unto my second wife’s brothers and sisters.
And as to one bedstead and bedding and a certain promissory note for £10, both of which were the property of BETTY, my present wife. I give the identical bedstead and bedding and promissory note unto her the said BETTY, my now wife, but in case she die before me, I give the same unto MARY, the daughter of BETTY, my wife (who has intermarried with one JOHN JACKSON).
I also give her, the said BETTY, the interest of £50 during her life in case she does not violate her widowhood, and at her death or marriage again, I give the same £50 unto my children.
And I give unto all my children (my son WILLIAM excepted), each £20.
And the residue of my personal estate I give unto all my children (my said son WILLIAM being included).
Executors John Lord of Todmorden, butcher, James Scholfield the elder, of Todmorden, joyner and carpenter, and my son, James Greenwood.
