Will of Robert Rhead

In the name of God, Amen. I, Robert Rhead, of the Yonkers in Westchester County, farmer, "being disordered in my body." I leave to my dear wife, Jane, 4 cows, 2 horses, 30 sheep, all my hogs and household goods and implements of husbandry, and to have her living in my house and off my farms during her widowhood. I leave to my son, Isaac, £100, which he has received. I leave to my son, Archer, £100, to be paid by my son, Robert, "upon the account of his having the farm." I leave to my son, Jacob, £100, to be paid by my son, Robert. I leave to my children, John, Phebe, Elizabeth, and Jane an equal share of the movables, except that my daughter Jane is to have £10 and a cow when she is 18. I leave to my son, Robert, my farm, "by the consent of my Land lord." I make my wife and my son Robert and Abraham Odell, executors.
Witnesses, Vincent Fowler, Frederick Fowler, Cornelius McCarthy. Proved, September 18, 1770.

I found something that is rather interesting:

Elizabeth is mentioned in one and Elijah is mentioned in the other. Since wills were hand-written in those days, I’m assuming the name Eliza or Elijah was not written legibly and thus the name has been interpreted differently. Quite obviously some people have deciphered the name as Eliza (Elizabeth) and others as Elijah. I choose to believe New York City Wills, 1766-1771, just because it has the will in its entirety and the other book just lists an abstract. (It's really a coin toss isn't it?) If anyone has a copy of this will in its original hand-written form, would you mind sharing it with us? I would love to see how the name Eliza/Elijah was written.

In his will, Robert mentions three sons (Isaac, Archer and Jacob) as receiving £100 and one son (Robert) as inheriting the farm. In the 1700s, sons generally received more than daughters and that would explain why Robert's sons received monetary amounts and his daughters received movables. I don't know why he didn't leave his son, John, £100. Perhaps John was a minor and that's why he didn't receive any money. Or maybe this name has been interpreted wrong and John is really a Jean or a Joan. Robert mentions Jane getting £10 and a cow when she turns 18 so he did have this one younger daughter. It's not a stretch to think that he also would have other children under the age of 18. Since John, Phebe and Elizabeth aren't specifically mentioned as receiving anything special like their siblings, they must be the youngest of the children.
