    Help with what this will leaves

    Have just been following my Kirkman's and back a generation is a will leaving very specific amounts to the children dated 1820; having come to the end, there is a statement 2yrs later which I am unsure about so could do with a bit of help.

    Am attaching the note which is written 1822, does it mean he left less than £600?

    From the will
    He left his farm to Sarah, Robert and John as tenants in common
    Two sons £700 a piece
    Two daughters £500 a piece

    Yes the estate was worth less than £600 though he must have thought his assets would cover the legacies at the time the will was made.

    Thanks Jill, never expected to find such a note at the end as I was reading it.
