In the name of God, Amen. I Isabell Midford of Longbenton in the county of Northumberland spinster, being weak and sickly of body but of sound perfect and disposing mind and memory, praised be God, yet considering the mortality of my weak body and for the satisfying of my friends and relations after my death do make and declare this my last will and testament in manner and form following. First and principally I commit and commend my soul unto the hands of almighty God my maker and creator and to Jesus Christ my redeemer, and my body to return to its primitive dust from whence it was taken, to be decently interred at the discretion of my executor, revoking and disannulling all other wills and testaments.
As touching my temporal goods that God hath endowed me withal I give and bequeath them in manner and form following.
First, I give and bequeath to my nephew William Chambers son to my sister Ann Chambers the sum of ten pounds;
Also, I give and bequeath to my nephew John Chambers son to my sister Ann Chambers the sum of ten pounds;
Also, I give and bequeath to my niece Mary Chambers daughter to my sister Ann Chambers the sum of ten pounds;
Also, I give and bequeath to my brother Thomas Chambers all the rest of my goods moveable and unmoveable;
Lastly I constitute and appoint my brother Thomas Chambers to be my sole executor of this my last will and testament, he discharging my debts and funeral expenses. In witness whereof I have hereunto set to my hand and seal the second day of March Anno Domini 1699/1700.
