Abstract of Judith Gould will. Judith's will was dated 6 May 1650, proved 3 September 1650. As abstracted by Walter Goodwin Davis,[1]

Judith Gould of Watford, co. Hertford, made her will May 6, and it was proved Sept. 3, 1650. She left to her son Abel £400 and a little box at the house of her cousin Gase and all that was in it. To her daughters Lydia and Elizabeth, £300 each. To Hannah and Elizabeth, daughters of her daughter Hannah, £40 between them. Her son in law George Younge owed her £100 of which her executors should claim only £40. To the own children of her son Nathan in New England, £40. To the children of her daughter Sarah, £60 if her [the testatrix's] son Nathan had not divided the goods her son Zacheus left him when he died equally between him and his sister Sarah, but, if they were equally divided, then this £100 [sic] was to be equally divided for the use of their children. If her son Abel should die before coming of age, £300 should be divided between her daughter Lydia and Elizabeth, £50 given to her daughter Hannah, £20 to her daughter Marie, and £30 sent to New England to be equally divided between the own children of her son Nathan and her daughter Sarah. To Master Goodwinge, minister at Watford, £5. Residue to her executors; son Abel and daughters Lydia and Elizabeth. Witnesses: Ralph King, Thomas Barrabee.
