Will of Fanny Sarah Ellis

I, Fanny Sarah Ellis of Charlottetown in Queen's County Prince Edward Island, Spinster, do declare this to be my last will. I bequeath to my unmarried sisters or the survivors or survivor of them the annuity or income received from the Ellis and Brine Estates in Newfoundland during their joint lives or the life of the survivors or survivor of them. I hereby revoke all other wills and testamentary dispositions by me at any time heretofore made. I appoint my sister Elizabeth Wood Ellis executrix of this my will. In witness whereof I have set my hand and seal this twentieth day of July 1913. Fanny S. Ellis. Signed and acknowledged by the above Fanny Sarah Ellis as her will in the presence of us present at the same time who in her presence and in the presence of each other have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses. S. P. Hodgson. George Coombs.

(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.
