A heading and what I assume is a Latin will

Kia ora

Can anyone tell me roughly what this says the will of Johannes Archarde.

The first one sentence is on a separate page but I assume that is the 'heading' of the will.

I would like to know roughly what the brief document says, not the probatum, I have the standardish one written down somewhere already.

Many thanks.
So the very first 'heading' is simply the date?

Itís not a heading, but the first line of the text. It just happens to fall at the end of the page:
