Will of Thomas Sharp - 1771
In the name of God, Amen. I, Thomas Sharp, of Albany, being of sound mind.
I leave to my eldest son, Jacobus, £10, in bar of rights to any claim as Heir at Law. And I acquit and discharge him, for what I have against him for his maintainance and support while he has been in Gaol. I also discharge him from all monies I have disbursed for him, on condition that he rests contented and make no disturbance.
I leave to my two daughters, Anne and Auriantie, the use of my house and lot, and the profits of my negroes, and the income of all the rest of estate; so long as they remain unmarried. After their death or marriage I leave to my daughter Mary, wife of John Monier 1/3.
I make my three daughters, executors, with power to sell.
Proved, October 6, 1773.
