Details of Will

I, William Hurd Adams of Harvington, Fruit Grower, give:

  • To my son, Frank Adams, £100.
  • To my Trustees in trust for my three children who shall survive me (if my son, Frank, is under 21, my Trustees shall invest the share), all my real and personal estate:  to sell the real estate at Harvington; to receive and pay the rents, profits and income of my real estate at Badsey to my three children; when my son, Frank Adams attains the age of 21 or upon his previous death, my Trustees shall sell my real estate at Badsey.

It is my earnest wish and desire that my daughter, Mary Adams shall, subject to the Guardians’ approval, provide a house for my son, Frank Adams, during his minority.  I direct my Trustees to allow my daughter, Mary Adams, to reside in the house now occupied by me at Harvington until the sale of the same takes place, the expenses of her so residing to be borne by my estate.

Executors and Trustees (and guardians of my infant son, Frank Adams):  Frederick Haines of Greenhill, Evesham, Fruit Merchant, and James Gill of Norton & Lenchwick, Farmer

Signed:        William Hurd Adams
