Will of John Carter
In re John Carter deceased
This is the last will and testament of me, John Carter, of St. John's, Cooper. I appoint Hugh Carter sole executor of this my Will. I bequeath all my monies, goods and effects of which I may die possessed to my children surviving me, to have the same in equal proportions share and share alike. In witness whereof I have hereunto subscribed my hand at St. John's this ninth day of March, A.D. 1920. John Carter. Signed published and declared by the Testator as and for his last will and testament in the presence of us, both being present at the same time who in his presence and at his request hereunto subscribe ourselves as witnesses attesting the due execution hereof. Edgar Jones, Rector of St. Thomas's Ch Rebecca Carter.

(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.
