In the name of God Amen.
The 26th day of January 1618 and in the sixteenth year of the Reign of our Sovereign Lord James by the Grace of God King of England, Frances and Ireland, defender of the faith, and of Scotland the fifty-second, I, Richard Kinsman of Launcells in the County of Cornwall, yeoman, being sick in body but perfect in memory (thanks be given to Almighty God) do make and ordain this my last Will and Testament in manner and form following:
First, I bequeath my Soul to Almighty God, my maker and blessed redeemer, and my body to [a] Christian burial.
Item, I give and bequeath to my daughter Elizabeth, to be paid to her within two and a half years after my decease the sum of twenty pounds.
The rest of all my goods and chattels not given nor bequeathed I give and bequeath unto my son John Kinsman  whom I make my sole executor to see this, my last Will and Testament, performed in manner and form aforesaid.
Elizabeth Kinsman 
 Note that John is not equivalent to Jonas, two separate sons.
 The document is not signed by the testator but by Elizabeth Kinsman, presumably not his wife as no wife is mentioned in the will. His daughter?
