Probate has been granted in respect to the will of the late Mr James Kinghorne Chisholm, of Gledswood, Narellan, near Camden, who died on August 28 last. The net value of his estate was sworn at £26,753 10s. Testator appointed his son-in-law, Thomas Charles Barker, of Marylands, near Bringelly, and David William Roxburgh, solicitor, of Sydney, trustees and executors. To each of these he bequeathed £100. He bequeathed his books, pictures, plate, household furniture, and effects, carriage, and horses, at Gledswood, to his daughters, Elizabeth Mary and May Macarthur Chisholm, in equal shares, together with the property known as Gledswood, with certain lands adjacent, consisting of 1340 acres, absolutely as tenants in common. Testator expressed a wish that the Gledswood property should pass into the possession of his grandson, James Chisholm Martin, should he survive the two daughters named. The residue of the real and personal estate was devised to the trustees for the benefit of the testators four daughters—Elizabeth Mary Chisholm, Emliy Macarthur Barker, Mary Macarthur Chisholm, and Blanche Martin, wife of Peter Martin, in equal shares. The testator declared that, as his sons had been provided for under his father's will, he did not feel called upon to make provision for them out of his estate.
