And she is to have two cows to be kept with fodder and pasture, winter and summer, and my farm at the Ferry, with firewood and bread corn, and liberty to keep fowls, and £10 yearly, and a negro girl. I leave to my children, Aert, Matthew, and David, after my wife’s decease, all my houses, lands and tenements lying and being at the Ferry in the township of Brookland, bounded south by the lot of Adriaen Hoogland, formerly George Jacobs, north by the river, east by a creek, adjoining to John Reportes land, and west by the highway leading from Brookland to the Ferry. Containing about 200 acres of land and meadow. And also all my lands in the county of Somerset in New Jersey. I leave to my youngest son John, £50.

I leave all oods and chattels to my sons, Aert, Matthew, and David. I leave all my negroes to my said sons, and two of the old negroes, Sambo and his wife Mary, are to stay on the farm, and are not to be sold, and they are to have every Saturday afternoon to work for themselves.
