Johnny calls for the attorney to help transcribe his last Will and Testament, as he consigns his soul to the Lord God, and his worldly belongings he bequeaths to his various women and children, in their order of importance.
To my Dearly Beloved wife Rosa, I bequeath 'Imperimis' my estate called Merryment and Joy with its one thousand five hundred acres along with its Great House, tenements and hereditaments and appurtenances, and to my children by Mimbo Wampo, I bequeath each and everyone of them to share and share alike my mountain lands called Silver Sand Hills which I have named after their mother's homeland, all of three hundred acres more or less. I hereby leave 500 pounds sterling money of this island to be devoted to the freeing of my said nine children of the body of Mimbo Wampo, my negro slave woman, from all forms of slavery and servitude, as soon as possible after my decease by my chosen Executors, Mr Bartholomew Bowleg of Bagsville in the Parish of St Andrews and Mr George Sandwich of Glittering Waters also in the Parish of St Andrews. It is also my wish and desire that Mimbo Wampo, my negro slave woman, should be freed from all manner of servitude and bondage's and given three acres of land to hold until her death along with sufficient land to have as a planting ground on the said mountains lands called Silver Sand Hills, for her sustenance and her maintenance. I give and bequeath all my books along with 150 pounds sterling money of this island to my loving nurse, Samboese Milly, a free woman of colour, and also to her may she be granted sufficient money's under the supervision of my said Executors to purchase a suitable brick and mortar house in the town of Kingsbridge in the parish of that same name, to have and to hold to her and her heirs and assigns from that day forward. This be my Last Will and Testament signed by my hand this day of the 10th of April 1804.
Though the above is a fictional Will its written in the very style which was common at the time for men of Johnny Newcome's status. However it must be stated here that not all men freed their mixed race children or their enslaved concubines, though some did.
