sound mind and memory for which and all his unbounded 
goodness and unmeritted mercies to me a most ungratefull 
sinner I humbly thank my God do make this my last Will and 
Testament in manner following whereas my ever Dear and most 
deservedly beloved Mother settled on me and gave me Power to

hundred pounds I do give and bequeath to my said dearest

father's last Will and Testament both on my brother Thomas 
Cecill Maunsell's estate I give and bequeath to my Dr Sister 
Ann five hundred pounds to my brother William Maunsell I do 
give and bequeath three hundred pounds I shall I believe 
leave sufficient in my Black Chest at the very bottom to pay 
the expences of my Illness and Funeral the latter I would 
have as private as can be and out of what remains I would 
have given to my beloved Mother's servants whatever she my 
dearest Mother shall think Proper I always did mean and in 
former wills did leave one hundred pounds to Charitable uses 
not to be given in a shewy way as a legacy from me but in 
such a manner as occasion offers but short would not direct 
but leave it to those dear friends who are better Judges 
than I whether it is best to give it all or in what manner 
as I know it is much wanting to some of my family And I also 
know that have All feeling Charitable hearts and are much 
better Judges than I am On thing I request that my Brother 
William will get somebody else to have me laid under the 
vestry Room with my two beloved sisters and my two dear 
Cousins are already laid but it is my Request that my
