Martin GRADY, Shoalhaven River near Larbert April 29th, 1858
I, Martin GRADY do hereby will my property in the presence of John C RYRIE and William McDOWALL. It is my will that after my death all my property including my stock and goodwill of my landed property and everything I am possessed of should be sold and equally distributed amongst all my family except my eldest daughter Catherine Smith, and each of them to receive their share as they each come of age and not before that time. It is my wish that my three youngest daughters should live with their step-mother until they come of age or marry, for which she is to receive a fair remuneration for their proper support and in case of her not doing them due justice, my executors have it in their power to remove them from her. I hereby appoint John C RYRIE and William McDOWALL to act as my Executors after my death in this my Last Will and Testament.
