    1. [S58] Will, Prerogative Court of Canterbury, Prerogative Court of Canterbury, Lambeth Palace, London, England, (England, Kew: The National Archives (formerly the Public Record Office)), Prob/11/217, Image #413, 2 Jul 1651.
      Will of Valentine Austen, of Wye, 24 March 1650/51, Maltster


      IN THE NAME OF GOD AMEN, I, VALENTINE AUSTEN, of Wye, in the County of Kent, Maltster, being weak and infirm in body but of good and perfect memory, praised be God therefore, do the four and twentieth [24th] day of March Anno Domini one thousand six hundred and fifty [1650/51] make, ordain and declare this my last Will and Testament in writing for the disposing of such goods, chattels and lands and tenements and hereditaments as it hath pleased the Lord God to bestow upon me after this manner following, revoking hereby both in deed and law all other former Wills and Testaments heretofore by me made,


      First, I recommend my soul into the hands of Almighty God my faithful Creator and Redeemer and my body to be decently interred by the discretion of my Executor hereafter named and ELIZABETH, my dear and wellbeloved wife,


      Item, I make and appoint my loving son, MATTHEW AUSTEN, of Wye aforesaid, maltster, my sole Executor.


      Item I give unto my sons, VALENTINE, THOMAS, EDMUND, RICHARD, HENRY, WILLIAM and JOHN AUSTEN, the full sum of three score pounds [£60] a piece of lawful money of England to be paid unto them and every of them by my said Executor at their several ages of one and twenty years [21] and likewise unto my daughter, ELIZABETH AUSTEN, the like sum of three score pounds [£60] of lawful money of England to be paid unto her at twenty [20] years of age or at the day of marriage which shall first happen.


      And my mind further is that if any of my said sons shall happen to die and depart this natural life before they shall attain unto the said age of one and twenty [21] years that then his or their portion or portions shall be equally divided amongst my sons that are then living.


      And I will that if any of my said sons do happen to decease not having issue of their bodies that then the portion and sum given to him or them as above said shall return and be equally divided amongst the rest of my sons that are then living.


      And my mind is that if my said daughter, ELIZABETH, do die without issue or before she shall complete the age of twenty [20] years that then her portion shall be equally divided amongst my said sons then living.


      And I will that if my said beloved wife do keep herself a widow then she shall for long as she remain a widow have her dwelling in my said dwelling house situate in the parish of Wye above said and shall have the use of my said children’s portions paid unto her by my said Executor to bring up my said children.


      And my mind is that if my said loving wife do marry that then my said Executor shall pay her the use of seven score pounds [£140] during the term of her life and she to have the said house solely to my said Executor and I will that all my household stuff after it is praised to be equally divided amongst all my said children and as they come to age severally to receive their several portions of the said household stuff.
      Will of Valentine Austen, of Wye, 24 March 1650/51, Maltster, page 2


      And my mind is that if my said Executor do happen to die not having issue of his body lawfully begotten that then the next heir shall be my Executor of this my last Will and Testament.

      And all the rest of my goods, cattle, lands, tenements and hereditaments (my debts, legacies and all other my expenses being paid and discharged) shall remain and continue to my said Executor and his heirs forever.

      And this I publish to be my last Will and Testament and have hereunto set my hand and seal

      SEALED AND DELIVERED in the presence of us the mark
      Thomas Austen Valentine X Austen
      Andrew Bodkin and seal of



      THIS WILL was proved, approved and insinuated at London before the Worshipful William Foorth, doctor of laws and Surrogate of the Worshipful Sir Nathaniel Brent, Knight, doctor of laws also, and master or keeper of the Prerogative Court lawfully constituted the second [2nd] day of July in the year of our Lord God one thousand six hundred fifty-one [1651] by the oath of MATTHEW AUSTEN, the son and Executor named in the Will above said, to whom administration was committed of all and singular the goods, chattels and debts of the said deceased, he being first sworn upon the Holy Evangelist well and truly to administer the same.
