Transcriber's and Editor's Notes
The dates in the PCC clerk's copy are clear, but one of them must be wrong. His burial record would probably help.
The following details are believed to be true but should not be totally relied upon:
Testator: Son of William (1711 qv); Brother of Thomas (1752 qv).
  Translated and paragraphed.
with some of the standard preamble and "legalese" removed.

... I Robert Juggins of Whateley ... innholder ... infirm in body ...
  • I give the following to my dear wife Mary for life:
    • My messuage or inn known as the White Hart Inn in Wheatley, and all my other freehold lands, tenements etc.
    • My leasehold estate in Horspath and all my other leasehold lands.
  • After my wife's decease I give [all the above] to my sister Elizabeth Wells for life, charged with the payment of a 5 pa annuity to my sister Mary Juggins for six years, beginning one year after my wife's decease and paid without deductions for her separate use, her husband having no control over it and her receipt being sufficient.
    If my sister Mary pre-deceases my wife, the annuity is to be void.
  • After the decease of the survivor of my wife and sister I give [all the above] to my sister's son William Wells and his heirs etc, the freehold premises forever and the leasehold for the remainder of the lease, charged with the payment of 10 apiece to Paul, Jane, Elizabeth and Ann Wells, children of my sister Elizabeth Wells.
  • My brother-in-law Paul Wells owes me 50 on his Bond.
    My wife is to deliver up the bond to him to be cancelled, on the following conditions:
    • That at that time he enters into a Note for Value Received to my wife for the payment of all interest up to the time of my death.
    • That at the same time he enters into a Bond (with penalty of 50) to my brother Francis Juggins and his Executors etc for the payment of 50s pa to my sister Mary Juggins for life, beginning one year after my decease.
    • If he refuses to enter into such a Bond and Note for three months after my decease, I give all the money due and to become due to my wife.
  • I give all my other estate, effects, goods and chattels to my wife whom I make sole Executrix, none of it being charged with any of my legacies ... I revoke all former wills.
