Will of John Feehan
Saint John’s Newfoundland Sept 8th 1870. I John Feehan of Saint John’s Newfoundland being of sound mind hereby appoint Alexr Stevenson of Saint John’s aforesaid to be my sole executor in carrying out my last will and testament as follows To my beloved wife Mary Feehan I bequeath all the stock and trade and after her death No. 1 house and Cooper shop in Water Street to my oldest son Joseph, No. 2 house in Water Street to my son Patrick No. 3 house in Water Street to my oldest daughter Kate & Stasia between them and decide on the other two houses between Thomas & Michael.
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.
