Will of Thomas Bendell
In re the Estate of Thomas Bendell deceased
This is the last will and testament of Thomas Bendel of Harbor Buffett, N.F.L.D. Know all by this deed, I hereby give and bequeath to my daughter Emma and her heirs and executors for her use and benefit for ever - All my estate land house garden water side property and all buildings thereon, except and with this proviso that should either of my other daughters now in America wish to come to Harbor Buffett they are to have the use of the house to live in and part use of the property. My personal property furniture and effects I shall hold to be yet divided among the different members of my family as I may think fit to do.
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will and testament of Thomas Bendell deceased.
(Listed in the margin next to this will the following)
|Note: The wills in those will books are NOT actual wills. They are hand-written copies of a, "last will and testament," written 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. 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.
