I being going after my husband unto Old England, and not knowing when God may take me out of this life, do dispose of my goods as followeth: Imprimis : I do bequeath and it is my will, that after my decease the Church of Wyndsor, of which I am now a member, shall have and forever enjoy that piece of meadow Land which belongeth unto me called Hoyt's Meadow, for the use of a pastor or Teacher of the Church, as the Church shall see most need, and, when one dead, to go successively to another always. Item. Concerning the rest of my Estate, in the Hands of whosoever it is left or may be found, I bequeath unto my sister Elizabeth Wildish and her children which I suppose live in Rochester in Kent, to be equally divided among them.
