(From FHL Film #2070901 Newfoundland Supreme Court Wills 1929-1932)
This is the Last Will and Testament of me, Thomas Davis of 42 Prince of Whales Street, St John's, Newfoundland, Painter, made at St John's aforesaid the eleventh day of November A.D. 1924
I hereby revoke all former wills and testamentary depositions by me at
any time heretofor made.
SIGNeD PUBLISHeD AND DeCLAReD by the above named Thomas Davis as and for his last Will and testament in our presence both
being present at the same time who at his request and in his presence and in the presence of each other have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses .
|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.
