Will of George Oborne Every
This is the last will and testament of George Oborne Every late of Poole Co. Dorsetshire England now of Tizzards Harbor in the Electoral District of Twillingate & Fogo in the Northern District of Newfoundland. First- I give devise and bequeath to my beloved wife Susannah Every my messuage of dwelling house in which I now reside situate in Tizzards Harbour aforesaid with the appurtenances unto together with all my lands and premises with all monies and debts due to me and with all my household goods & furniture In short whatever property I may die possessed of or become entitled too in this colony or elsewhere for her own absolute use and benefit for ever And I hereby nominate and appoint my friend John B. Blandford of Twillingate executor of this my last will.
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. 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.
