      Will of Nathaniel Rucke, of Norton, 15 November 1802


      IN THE NAME OF GOD AMEN I, NATHANIEL RUCKE, of Norton, in the County of Kent, Gentleman, being low and weak in body but of sound and perfect mind, memory and understanding praised be almighty God for the same, and being willing and desirous to settle my worldly affairs whilst I have strength and capacity so to do, do make, publish and declare this my last Will and Testament in manner and form following, (that is to say);

      First and principally of all I commend my soul into the hands of almighty God my creator in all humble hopes of its future happiness and my body I commit to the earth when it shall please God to take my life, to be decently interred at the discretion of my Executors hereinafter named, and as to such worldly estate wherewith it hath pleased God to bless me, I give and dispose of the same in manner and form following, (that is to say);

      I give and devise all and every my messuages, lands, tenements and hereditaments, parts, purparts and shares of messuages, lands, tenements and hereditaments situate lying and being at or near a certain place called Shottenden in the parishes of Chilham and Sheldwich, or one of them, or elsewhere in the said County of Kent, unto my son, JOHN RUCKE, his heirs and assigns forever.

      I give and bequeath unto my said son, JOHN RUCKE, the sum of three hundred pounds [£300] of good and lawful money of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland now current in Great Britain to be paid him by my Executors hereinafter named within twelve [12] months next after my decease.

      I give and bequeath unto THOMAS NEAME, of Selling in the said County, Gentleman, and GEORGE CHAPMAN, of Queen’s Court in the parish of Ospringe in the said County, Gentleman, and my said son, JOHN RUCKE, the sum of one thousand and three hundred pounds [£1,300] of good and lawful money of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland now current in Great Britain upon trust that they the said THOMAS NEAME, GEORGE CHAPMAN and JOHN RUCKE and the survivor of them or the Executors or Administrators of such survivor shall and do as soon after my decease as conveniently it may be done, put and place out the same at interest or real or parliamentary securities at their discretion and shall and do pay to or apply the interest dividends provided and profits thereof to and for the use and benefit of my son, SIMON RUCKE, for and during the term of his natural life in such manner as they or the survivor of them shall think proper and most considered to his benefit. And from and after the decease of my said son, SIMON RUCKE, I give and bequeath the said sum of one thousand and three hundred pounds [£1,300] unto and amongst all and every the child and children of my said son, SIMON RUCKE, lawfully to be begotten who shall be living at the time of his decease or which shall be born in due time afterwards, equally to be divided between them (if more than one) share and share alike. But, if my said son, SIMON RUCKE, shall happen to die without leaving any issue of his body lawfully to be begotten living at the time of his decease, then I give and bequeath unto my three daughters, CATHERINE, MARY, the wife of ROBERT LAMBERT, and MARTHA, the wife of BIDDINGFIELD HENRY LEESE, the sum of three hundred [£300] pounds each of good and lawful money of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland now current in Great Britain part of the said sum of one thousand three hundred pounds [£1,300], and the remaining sum of four hundred pounds [£400] the residue thereof, I give and bequeath unto my said son, JOHN RUCKE, his Executors, Administrators and assigns to and for his and their own proper use and benefit.

      I give and bequeath unto my said daughter, CATHERINE, the sum of one thousand pounds [£1,000] of good and lawful money of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland now current in Great Britain to be paid unto her by my Executors, hereinafter named, within twelve [12] months next after my decease.

      I give and bequeath unto my said daughter, MARY, the wife of ROBERT LAMBERT, the sum of five hundred pounds [£500] of good and lawful money of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland now current in Great Britain to be paid unto her by my Executors, hereinafter named, within twelve [12] months next after my decease.
      I give and bequeath unto my said daughter, MARTHA, the wife of BIDINGFIELD HENRY LEESE, the sum of four hundred pounds [£400] of good and lawful money of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland now current in Great Britain (she having already had and received of me one hundred pounds [£100]) to be paid unto her by my Executors, hereinafter named, within twelve [12] months next after my decease.

      And all the rest, residue and remainder of my goods, chattels, rights, credits, ready money, securities for money, personal estate and effects whatsoever and of what nature, kind, sort or quality soever the same shall be and consist of at the time of my decease (from and after the payment thereout of all my just debts, funeral expenses, the charges of proving this my last Will and Testament and other incident charges and expenses) in case any residue shall then remain, I give and bequeath unto my children, the said SIMON RUCKE, JOHN RUCKE, CATHERINE RUCKE, MARY, the wife of ROBERT LAMBERT, and MARTHA, the wife of BIDINGFIELD HENRY LEESE, their Executors, Administrators and assigns equally to be parted and divided amongst them share and share alike and I hereby direct that in case my personal estate and effects shall not be sufficient to pay unto my said children the several legacies hereinbefore by me given and bequeathed unto them, that then each of my said children shall abate rateably and in proportion according to the several sums hereinbefore by me given and bequeathed unto them.

      I hereby make, name, institute and appoint the said THOMAS NEAME, GEORGE CHAPMAN and JOHN RUCKE, Executors of this my said last Will and Testament and I hereby will and direct that my said Trustees and Executors or any or either of them, or their or any or either of their Executors or Administrators, shall not be answerable or accountable for any more of my monies or effects than what they shall respectively and actually receive by virtue of this my Will or of the trusts hereby in them reposed, nor with or for any loss or losses which shall or may happen to the same or any part thereof so as such loss or losses happen without their or any or either of their willful default or neglect, nor shall one of them be answerable or accountable for the others or other of them or for the heirs, Executors or Administrators of the others or other of them but each of them for himself and his own acts, deeds, receipts, neglects and defaults only, and that they, my said Trustees and Executors, shall and may in the first place retain, reimburse and repay himself and themselves all such costs, charges, damages and expenses as they any or either of them shall or may sustain, expend or be put unto or obliged to pay in the execution of this my Will or the trusts hereby reposed in them or any thing immediately relating thereunto.

      I hereby revoke, annul and make void all former Will and Wills and other Testamentary dispositions by me at any time heretofore made and do declare this only to be my last Will and Testament.

      IN WITNESS WHEREOF I, the said NATHANIEL RUCKE, the Testator, have to this my said last Will and Testament contained in three sheets of paper subscribed my name at the bottom of the two first sheets thereof and set and affixed my hand and seal to this third and last sheet thereof this fifteenth [15] day of November in the forty-third year of the reign of our Sovereign, Lord George the Third, by the grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland King, defender of the faith, and in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and two [1802].

      said NATHANIEL RUCKE, the Testator, to be his last
      Will and Testament in the presence of us the witnesses Nathaniel Rucke
      hereunder written who have, at his request and in his
      presence and in the presence of each other, hereunto
