Will of Hendrick van Wie

God be praised in the highest. Hendrik van Wie, being quite infirm, but in full possession of his mind, walking and standing, has declared to us his last will and desire as follows:

First, Hendrik van Wie wills that his wife shall remain in full possession of his estate so long as she lives, on condition that she bring up the children to the best of her poor ability, and after her death the lawful heirs begotten of them shall share alike, except that the eldest son shall first of all have a horse. But whenever his wife shall marry again, an inventory shall be made of all there is, in order that the estate not be diminished. In witness hereof he has signed this with is own hand.
