To my cousin William Bagwell, son of Henry my whole right to 160 acres in Old Plantation Neck, bounded by (Capt.) Graves northern line and for want of his heirs to his brother Thomas.

To each of my three daughters, Rebecca, Sarah & Anne, a silver spoon and to my daughter Mary Bagwell. The remainder of the estate to my wife and daughters Margaret & Mary. Also, to my brother Henry, silver shoe buckles.
