Description:

HAND, NATHAN. Contemporary copy of the will of Nathan Hand of Cape May County, 30 April 1755. One page, large folio. On vellum. Folded, with the folds reinforced (unnecessarily) with old repair tape (non-staining and easily removed). Some puckering and small holes at fold intersections. Accompanied by a partly printed document granting probate of the will to Lydia Hand, executrix, and Ezekiel Mulford, executor, 31 October 1755, and signed by Charles Read. In the will Hand describes himself as "very Sick and weak in Body." His oldest son and principal heir, Japeth, was not yet twenty; two younger sons were to be bound out between the ages of fourteen and twenty, Nathan "to learn the House Carpenters and Ship Joyners Trade or Trades" and Stephen to learn the "Taylors Trade.".
