In the name of God, Amen. “Be it known and manifest to all People that I, Geertie Ten Eyck, of Albany widow of Jacob Ten Eyck, being in good health.” I leave to my grandson Jacob, son of my son, Barent Ten Eyck, deceased, 30 shillings. I leave to the children of my son, Barent Ten Tyck, deceased, viz., Jacob, Johanes, Geertie, Janitie, Maria, and Barnye, 1/5 of all of my estate. To my sons Coenraedt and Hendrick, each 1/5. To Mary, wife of Andries Van Pelt, and to my daughter Teuntie, each 1/5. The heirs of my son, Barent Ten Eyck, deceased, when they come of age are to give a deed to Jacob, Ten Eyck, of New York, bolter, for all their right to two certain houses in New York, which did formerly belong to their grand-father, Coenraedt Ten Eyck, as described in a deed by me and others dated June 11, 1712, and now in the hands of Jacob Ten Eyck. I make my sons Coenraedt and Hendrick executors.
