Lastly she constituted, appointed, and ordained her both nieces Margret & Joney Keroon of KK Braddan joint executrices of all her goods and effects moveable and immoveable of what kind or nature whatever, cutting off all or any that can lay claim to any of her effects with six pence legacy each and allowing the two witnesses of this will one shilling apiecewhich the said is proved and this she declared to be her last will and testament before us.
