Will of Emma Clarke
The last will of Emma Clarke late of Brigus widow deceased
I Emma Clarke of Brigus Conception Bay Newfoundland do make and ordain this my last will and Testament in the manner and form following namely
In witness whereof I hereunto set my hand and seal at Brigus C.B. Nfld this twelfth day of January A.D. 1904. Emma her X mark Clarke. (LS) signed, sealed, published and declared by the said testatrix Emma Clarke as and for her last will and Testament in the presence of us who have subscribed our names as witnesses thereto in the presence of the said Testatrix having been first read over to her. William Gushue. Nathan his X mark Clarke.
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will of Emma Clarke.
(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.
