Last Will and TestamentLiber 2 Folio 131
I Angus Beaton, finding myself getting very weak in body and mind from Old Age and bad health that I cannot by the course of Nature live for any time. It is my will and I wish to settle my own little affairs in my own lifetime so as to prevent all disputes after my Death. Do make this my latter Will and Testament in manner following. I recommend my soul to God Almighty my Creator hoping to be saved through the merits of Jesus Christ my only Lord and Redeemer, And as to my worldly affairs I hereby leave all my Heritables and Moveables to Peggy MacPhee, my lawful wife during her lifetime, She at all times to take Angus Beaton our lawful son's advice in everything and after her death, I hereby nominate and appoint the above Angus Beaton, my lawful son to be my sole heir of my Heritables and Moveables and Houses and Household furniture of every Description. The Heritables are Fifty Acres [three words illegible]. This I do of my own free will and accord having all my faculties about me in presence of Alexander MacDougall, the Reverend Mr. John McLennan and Duncan Mac?
