Fifty pounds to my said daughter Sarah within twelve months after my decease
To my grandson James Bridger, son of my daughter Mary, wife of John Bridger, that messuage, barn and lands called Moses otherwise Bassetts containing by estimation twenty six acres in Rotherfield now in occupation of William Page, except the field called Adams for ever.
