Will of Edward Earl Brown
This is the last will and testament of me Edward
Earl Brown of Harbor Grace in the island of Newfoundland Sub - Collector
of Her Majesty’s Customs.-
Ed. E. Brown (LS) Signed and sealed by the testator Edward Earl Brown as and for his last will and testament in the presence of us, present at the same time, who in his presence at his request and in the presence of each other have hereunto set our names as witnesses, John Munn of Harbor Grace witness, Alexander Clift of Harbor Grace, witness.
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. 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.
