Will of Michael Collins
In re Michael Collins deceased
This is the last will and Testament of me Michael Collins of St. John's in the Island of Newfoundland Master Mariner, now of His Majesty's Customs, and I revoke all former wills by me made. I give devise and bequeath all my property of whatsoever kind to my daughter Agnes J. Collins and I appoint her sole executrix of this my will.
|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.
