    Transcript of Catherine Gondouin's will

    made 15 Dec 1736, proved 4 Apr 1739, London
    Thanks to Alyce for finding it and to Robert for the deciphering

    Will of Catherine Gondouin 15 December 1736
    IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. AMEN. Knowing that there is nothing so certain as Death and nothing so uncertain as the Hour thereof, being at present by the Grace of my God of sound body and mind. I was willing to write my last Will upon this paper desiring that it may be executed in manner following. First I commend my Soul to God my Creator, to Jesus Christ my Redeemer, and to the Holy Ghost my Sanctifier beseeching that most Holy and Adorable Trinity to have pity on me and at the time of my death to forgive me all my sins and to receive me in his Holy Paradise with all the Blessed. Amen
    As to my body when it shall please God to take me out of this World I leave to the Care of my Daughter Susanna Le Maitre to get buried honourably but without superficiality and as to what I shall leave after my Death I devise that the money that shall be found in Government shall be for the children of my Daughter as also what shall be received from France for I hope that my Cousin ?Goyor will be as good as his word, that if God should make him resolve to redeem the said rent that money should be put to interest with that which shall then be found that all the children may divide it equally and the interests which shall accrue there from every year shall be given to their Mother for their maintenance without or being obliged to give any account thereof. When they shall be of age which shall be put at five and twenty, except their Father or Mother should be willing to give it them sooner. That if my Cousin should redeem the said rent and that my Son in Law or my Daughter should be in want either through losses or ?sickness. They might have out of that money two hundred pounds in the Government the income of which they may enjoy as long as they live and after their death that money shall revert to their children. But if he should send but the rent that cannot be done there being but so little for so many Children and if any of the said Children should not govern himself as he ought he shall not have his share as to the Capital without the consent of his Father and Mother but only their share of the Income. If my Son in Law or my Daughter should think fit to take some of the money which is in Government to put the Boys out Apprentices that shall be deducted out of their shares when they shall come of age for I desire that the Girls and Boys shall be all equal. Except that I give to Catherine Le Maitre my God daughter a dozen of Damask Napkins with the Tablecloth of the same weave. I also give her my Diamond and two large Spoons and two Forks marked with her name with my six Teaspoons and case and the Sugar tongs. But if God should take her out of this World before she is of age or married I desire that this small present be for Mary Le Maitre her sister in order that she may remember me.
    As for the house which I have renamed with the Duke of Portland. I give it to my Daughter and to her husband after her if she die first upon condition however that neither of them shall be able to sell or mortgage the same except it should not be in a condition of being inhabited and that it should not be in their power to rebuild it then they may sell it and that money shall be put out to interest and they shall have the income as long as they shall live and after their death it shall revert to the Children.
    I also give to my Daughter all my Goods, Cloths and Linen which shall be found in the house at the time of my decease upon condition that she shall give to John Le ?Fevre my Godson ten pounds sterling and to Andrew Le ?Fevre two Guineas and to each of their sisters Anne and Elizabeth Le Le ?Fevre As a token of the friendship I had for their dear Mother. I desire also that my Daughter may give to my Cousin Margaret Auvray Ten Pounds Sterling for the great affection she has had for me and my family. I also give to Mrs. Judith Le Maitre Five Pounds Sterling she is a worthy person whom I value much. I desire that the whole may be given one year after my demise at farthest but as I don’t know in what situation I shall be when it should please God to take me out of this World. If there should not be money found as well to bury me as to give to those who are here above mentioned. I desire that the first money which shall come from France shall be paid out for that.
    I desire that Mr. Paul Des Bross To be executor of this my Will together with Mr. James Le Maitre my Son in Law. I hope he will be so good as to attempt of it. Otherwise I have my Son in Law and my Daughter executor and executrix of their Children. I believe them to be good Father and Mother not to wrong them. After having read this my Testament over I have not found therein anything contrary to my Will.
    Done in London the 15 December One Thousand Seven Hundred and Thirty Six.
    Written with my hand and Sealed with my Seal.
    Catherine Gondouin .
    God having taken out of this World Mrs. Le Maitre , and my Cousin Elizabeth Le ?Fevre being home again to live with us. I desire that if she does her duty to me and that she remains with me to my death that the five pounds which I had given to Mrs. Le Maitre be given to her instead of the Two Guineas which I had given her by this my Will.
    Done by me the tenth October 1738.
    Catherine Gondouin .

    I add to this my Will that I will not have Mr. Paul Des Bross be at any expense in case any ?uneasiness should happen in the family by me-
