Will of James Butler
In re JAMES BUTLER. DECEASED.
In the name of God Amen. I, James Butler, of Holyrood South Side Electoral District of Harbor Main, Newfoundland, Farmer, being of sound and disposing mind and memory and understanding, do make publish and declare this as my last will and Testament hereby revoking all former wills and testamentary dispositions heretofore by me at any time made.
In witness whereupon I have signed my hand this twenty ninth day of July 1918. JAMES BUTLER.
(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.
