Will of George Burton
In re GEORGE BURTON. DECEASED.
This is the last Will and Testament of me George Burton, of Safe Harbour, Bonavista Bay, in the Island of Newfoundland, made this Twenty first day of April, in the year of Our Lord One thousand Nine hundred and fourteen.
(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.
