Will of Mary Coady
In re Mary Coady deceased.
This is the last will and testament of Miss Mary Coady Queens Rd St. John's I hereby revoke all wills made by me at any time whatsoever: my property I dispose of thus. I will and bequeath my house situated on Queen's Rd. and all its contents furniture &c also the money I have in bank; to Miss Mary Kennedy daughter of Patrick Kennedy Gower St. St. John's with the condition that she is to have a High Mass said for my soul and twenty low Masses -
(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.
