      Will of JOHN RUCK, of Milton-next-Sittingbourne, 12 November 1751

      IN THE NAME OF GOD AMEN, I, JOHN RUCK, of Milton-next-Sittingborne [sic], in the County of Kent, dredgerman, being in pretty good health of body and of perfect memory and understanding but considering the uncertain continuance of my life, do make and declare this my last Will and Testament in manner and form following, that is to say:

      ALSO I GIVE AND BEQUEATH unto my said wife all my goods, chattels, rights and credits whatsoever and wheresoever the same may be she paying thereout all my just debts and I MAKE AND APPOINT my said wife sole Executrix of the [sic] my last Will and Testament.

      IN WITNESS WHEREOF I have hereunto set my hand and seal the twelfth day of November in the twenty-fifth year of the reign of our Sovereign, Lord George the second, by the grace of God, of Great Britain, France and Ireland King, defender of the faith, etc. and in the year of our Lord one thousand, seven hundred and fifty-one.
