Will of George Anderson
The last will of George Anderson late of St. John's Cooper, deceased.
In the name of God Amen I George Anderson of St. John's in the Island of Newfoundland being of sound and disposing mind memory & understanding do hereby will and bequeath all my property of whatsoever nature and wheresoever situate to my wife Elizabeth Anderson to be hers absolutely and for ever and I also appoint my said wife Elizabeth Anderson as executrix to this my last will and Testament In witness whereof I hereto subscribe my name at St. John's this 29 th day of April A.D. 1899. George Anderson signed by the said Testator George Anderson in the presence of the undersigned witnesses who signed in the presence of the said Testator and of each other. Geo F. Adams W.M. Clapp.
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will of George Anderson.
(Listed in the margin next to this will the following)
Note: The wills in those will books are NOT actual wills. They are either hand-written copies or in later years typed copies of a, "last will and testament," written or typed by the court clerk, after the death of the testator, when the executor presented them to the court for probate. The court clerk didn't list the signatures at the bottom, he (or she) just put them in the book in whatever order they were in, on the original document, no spacing most of the time, no punctuation and also no paragraphs. The originals were kept by the executor.
We who have typed these wills, have made every effort to include all the errors that were on the microfilm, in order to avoid destroying the integrity of the originals, where ever they may be. However, in some of the very long wills, we have tried to insert paragraphs to make it easier for the researcher to read the document.
