1633 will extract
« on: Wednesday 06 January 21 13:44 GMT (UK) »
Hello, can anyone help me fill in the missing words from this hightlighted extract? What I have managed to read myself (I think):

I give unto Richard Hartshorne my son one stand bed in the little chamber one press in the great chamber one [...] one salting trough one well trough of stone and [.........] and also the [........] the hall chimney [...] of the estate I have conferred upon him [...] shall be and stand for his filial portion

Many thanks

...Chamber one counter one...

...stone and ye harnesse [or?] ffurniture for a Corslet and also ye [?] [tree?] w(i)th
ye hookes & those fixed w(i)thin ye hall chimney:...

...upon him I will shall be...


Still thinking about the missing word.

ADDED:

...chimney: all w(hi)ch thing(es) in* respect of ye estate...

*  There seems to be a rogue line here which doesn't belong to the for above or the portion below.  I don't think it belongs to the in either.

ADDED 2:

I think the missing word is:   ...gallow tree...

Is it not just an opening parenthesis, which then closes in the following line, after upon him ?

ADDED - and after estate, I think there is yt (= that).

Thank you both so much. I can't believe I couldn't read some of those, it's so clear once you know!

I'm confused about the gallow tree. I know what one is...but I don't understand how one could be bequeathed.

Is it this, perhaps? An iron support for a pot over the fire?

The term is allegedly found in some 16th-century Yorkshire wills ...
