Leonard Pickersgill - 3rd
June 1749 - N040
To my three daughters Tabitha Pickersgill, Mary Pickersgill,
and Ann Pickersgill, £100 each.
To my daughter Elizabeth Kitson [Elizabeth Pickersgill],
wife of Jonathan Kitson of Knaresborough, Flax Dresser, an
annuity of £3 during the life of her husband, chargeable to my
copyhold property. This annuity to be paid direct to my daughter and
not to her husband. At his death, my daughter Elizabeth is to
receive £60. Should my daughter pre-decease her husband then the same
annuity is to be paid to my grandson John Kitson and any other
children she may have. My grandson is also to receive the £60 under
the same conditions.
I forgive my son-in-law Thomas Wheelhouse, husband of my
daughter Dorothy Wheelhouse [Dorothy Pickersgill] [Dorothy
Ingham], the £30 he owes me, my daughter having received £100 in
the lifetime of John Ingham, her late husband.
The residue of my personal estate, effects, and copyhold property
to my wife Dorothy Pickersgill, whom I appoint Executrix.
