A Collection of Newfoundland Wills
Albert F. Dearin


Will of Albert F. Dearin
from Newfoundland will books volume 4 page 484 probate year 1898
(The will index gives the probate year, for this will, as 1898, but it is filed chronologically with wills from 1886.)

In re
      Albert F. Dearin deceased.

Department of Public Charities, Bellevue Hospital, Superintendent’s Office, Ft. East 26th Street, New York, December 15, 1897.    Thomas F. Murphy.     Being in sound mind I, Albert F. Dearin, declare this to be my last will & testament:    all property that I am possessed of, real or personal of any description whatever, I give and bequeath to my half-sister, Mrs. H.H. Burnett (nee Catherine Dearin) & she promises to pay all my legal debts, if said property realizes sufficient with which to pay them.     Albert F. Dearin.    Witnesses R.W. Baird,     Henry Ritter.

Certified correct,
D. M. Browning



Note: The wills in those will books are NOT actual wills. They are either hand-written copies or in later years typed copies of a, "last will and testament," written or typed 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 and also no paragraphs. 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. However, in some of the very long wills, we have tried to insert paragraphs to make it easier for the researcher to read the document.
