Will of Noah Burge
In re NOAH BURGE. DECEASED.
I, Noah Burge, of the town of Bonavista, in the Dominion of Newfoundland, do hereby make and publish this my last Will and Testament, revoking any that may have been made by me heretofore. I appoint, Shadrach Burge, to be the Executor of this my last Will and Testament, directing him as soon as conveniently may be after my decease, to pay all my just and lawful debts, funeral and testamentary expenses out of my estate. After the payment of all my just and lawful debts, funeral and Testamentary expenses, I give devise and bequeath all my property as follows, that is to say:
In witness whereof I have set my hand this fourteenth day of October, A. D. one thousand nine hundred and twenty two. NOAH his X mark BURGE
(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.
