WILL OF THOMAS HAIGH
of 16 Crawford Street Walsden
I give and bequeath to my wife Martha Haigh, all money's or property in my name at the time of my death and in the event of my death. It is also my desire that after my death, she shall also make her will before it is too late, and she shall make such provision which will enable her brothers and sister or their issue, to share as near equally as possible, along with my brothers and sisters, or their issue, each family half share.
Should my wife remarry after my death, I appoint Tom Chaffer as one of my executors, to see to it that the sum of £300 shall be put out to the best interest, but in my wife's name she shall be allowed the interest either half yearly or yearly, as long as she lives. And in the event of my wife's death this said £300 shall be divided equally among my brothers and sisters or their issue.
Should my wife remain a widow all her life after my death, I give her full power over everything, to do with as she thinks best.
I appoint Tom Chaffer, my brother in law along with my wife Martha Haigh as my executors.
