Handwritten will of Matthew Flinders (FLI06) Page 2

following distribution of my monies &c do
take place
First. I give and bequeath the sum of twelve hundred pounds, lawful money of Great Britain,
to my dear wife Ann Flinders; or if she refuse
that sum, then such part thereof, as she may
think proper to specify.

Ann Flinders

Second. To my dear sister Susanna, wife of
George Pearson, now residing at St Ives in
Huntingdonshire, I give the sum of five hundred pounds sterling: she to enjoy the interest arising
there from during her life, and the principal,
at her death, to be equally divided amongst
her surviving children.

Sus. Pearson

Third. To my dear brother Samuel Ward
, lieutenant in the Royal Navy, I be-
-queath all the monies and property belonging
to me in the Isles of France and Bourbon, for
the obtaining of which, he is to be furnished
with the neceƒsary papers and authority;
but is to do it at his own cost and trouble.
And if the said monies and property do not
amount to five hundred pounds sterling, then
they are to be made up to that sum from my
property in England. And in case his decease
takes place before mine, and he leave issue
lawfully begotten there I give the said monies of five
hundred pounds from the general maƒs of my
property to his child, or by equal proportions
to his children.
