GOODS at English => English (Bouviers Law) Of Explained:

GOODS, property. For some purposes this term includes money, valuable
securities, and other mere personal effects. The term. goods and chattels,
includes not only personal property in possession, but also choses in
action. 12 Co. 1; 1 Atk. 182. The term chattels is more comprehensive than
that of goods, and will include all animate as well as inanimate property,
and also a chattel real, as a lease for years of house or land. Co. Litt.
118; 1 Russ. Rep. 376. The word goods simply and without qualification, will
pass the whole personal estate when used in a will, including even stocks in
the funds. But in general it will be limited by the context of the will.
