This is the last Will and Testament of me William Tyler of the Grove Mile End in the County of Middlesex Gentleman while being of sound and disposing mind memory and understanding thanks be to God for the same but considering the uncertainty of this mortal life I do make publish and declare in manner and form following …
And I give devise and bequeath unto Thomas Lampton glover James Stanford miller William Nicholson shoemaker and … [thus in the original] all of the parish of Edenbridge in the County of Kent and unto the survivors and survivor of them and the heirs and assignees of such survivor for ever all that my piece or parcel of freehold land with the Chapel and appurtenances which I some time since erected and built thereon situate and being in Edenbridge aforesaid (a plan whereof is in the possession of the said Thomas Lampton James Stanford and William Nicholson some or one of them) upon trust that they the said Thomas Lampton James Stanford William Nicholson and … [thus in the original] and the survivors and survivor of them and the heirs and assignees of such survivor shall and do stand and be seized and is and possessed thereof and of every part and parcel thereof for the use of such independent protestant dissenters as may choose to resort thereto for which purpose my will is that such Chapel shall be kept open as a place of worship for the reception of any Minister who shall preach the true Gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ such Minister being first approved of by my trustees of the same for the time being or the major part of them and my will further is that such Minister shall only be permitted to officiate therein so long as the major part of them my said last mentioned trustees or the survivors or survivor of them or other the trustee or trustees of the same for the time being shall think fit but nevertheless so and in such manner as that there shall always be an officiating Minister for such Chapel and that such Chapel shall always be kept open for weekly divine service or oftener if thought necessary. And my will and mind also is that when either of my said trustees of the same for the time or times shall happen to die the survivors and survivor of them shall choose and appoint another fit and proper person in his or their stead on whom with the survivors or survivor the conduct and management of the said Chapel shall then devolve so that four trustees shall always for ever hereafter exist to manage the same and appoint the Minister thereof in the majority of whom my will is the nomination and appointment shall always rest. And such Chapel and hereditaments and premises shall always for ever hereafter be conveyed by the surviving or continuing trustees unto such new appointed trustee or trustees in conjunction with themselves upon the trusts and for the ends intents and purposes aforesaid.
