a. to my dear wife, Harriet Bisset, my manor of Shepton Mallet,

of Arreton and out of the tythes of the same and out of Mersley, p.

named which sum with all my other personal estate I give to my wife
and my friends Richard Goden Simeon and said Thomas Sewell upon trust

their marriages and then 3,000 each as marriage portions and after
her death all moneys equally among my two daughters - my daughter Ann
