Will of Walter Robert Brown
In re Walter Robert Brown deceased.
I Walter Robert Brown of Bishops Harbour in the district of Bonavista and the Province of Newfoundland Trader being of sound mind and memory and considering the uncertainty of this frail and transitory life do therefore make and declare this to be my last will and Testament that is to say
In witness whereof I the testator have hereunto set my hand this tenth day of October in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and eleven a former will made by me is destroyed - Walter Robert Brown -
(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.
