Will of Robert Dooling
In the name of God Amen. I Robert Dooling late of the Town of New Ross in the County of Wexford Ireland, but at present residing in the Town of Saint John's in the Island of Newfoundland, Butcher, being weakly in body though of perfect sound mind and understanding and being desirous to prevent disputes after my decease concerning such worldly property as Providence has granted to me, do make ordain and constitute this my last will and testament, and I hereby revoke cancel and disavow all or any other made or said to have been made by me.
|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.
