      WILLIAM ATKINSON, JUNIOR, of Scotford, eldest son [of William and Ann ATKINSON], b. ____, d. unmarried, 1679/80 and was buried 11 mo. [Jan.] 14, in Lancaster meeting house yard. Mr. Jenkins says: "Within a few weeks after the death of William Atkinson his oldest son William to whom he had left the disposition of his estate died also. William Atkinson, the younger, directed in his will that his body should be buried in Friends' burying place belonging to Lancaster meeting and he further gave ten pounds to 'such poor people as are in scorne called Quakers.' The little holdings in Seotford which had come to him from his father were all given to his brother Christopher, the next oldest son. He describes the property as 'those severall p'cells lying and being within the libertyis of Seotford and knowne by the names of Heron's Shreason, Cookstooll, Steell End and Great Acre all contayning by Estimacon six Acres and a halfe' and also the half of one acre 'on the backside of the same' which belonged to Christopher Atkinson but which was evidently not entirely paid for. The house where William lived, which was called Beckside, also in Scotford, was given to his brother John. After making provision for his mother, Ann, and numerous small legacies to relatives and friends and after giving 'twoe of my best sheepe' to 'little John Padgett (sonne of Francis Padgett),' he appointed his brother John his executor." This will was dated Dec. 22, 1679 and proved Feb. 11, 1679, (1679/ 80), in the Archdeanery of Richmond.
