Will of Allan Crane
In re Allan Crane deceased.
I Allan Crane of Bay Roberts in the Island of Newfoundland Fisherman hereby revoke all former wills and Testamentary Depositions made by me and declare this to be my last will and Testament. I devise and bequeath and expressly direct that all my earthly goods and property of every description whatsoever of which I may die possessed be disposed of in the following manner. That I give and bequeath everything which I possess to George Crane who is my father that is to say the house I own and the land I own and all the fences on the said land I give and bequeath to my father to be his property when I die - Allan his X mark Crane -
(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.
