In witness whereof I have hereunto my hand subscribed at Bay Roberts in the Island of Newfoundland this fourteenth day of August Anno Domini one thousand nine hundred and sixteen. Ruth Bradbury
Signed published and Declared by the testatrix as her last Will and Testament in the presence of us who in her presence at her request and in the presence of each other have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses. John Bishop Lumber Merchant. Robert Bishop Carpenter.

(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.
