  2. Will of Charles Beckford Long of [Langley Hall] Hampstead Norris, Berkshire proved 07/06//1836. In the will made in 1825, after legacies of £100 each to his brother Edward Beeston Long and the latter's son Henry Lawes Long, he left his entire estate to his son Charles Edward Long. In a codicil also of 1825 he left £100 each to his daughters Mary Henrietta and Caroline Elizabeth and son Robert Ballard Long as a token of his affection, 'as they are already amply provided for.' In further undated codicil he left £100 to Robert Sympson then residing at Brussels, regretting his inability to leave him more owing to 'the deplorable state of my affairs in Jamaica.'
