I give devise and bequeath to my beloved wife Bridget all my real and personal estate of which I may die possessed or entitled to to hold to her and her heirs executors administrators and assigns for ever, subject to the condition that my just debts funeral and testamentary expenses shall in the first place be paid out of my said estate and I appoint Henry Renouf of Saint John’s and my beloved wife Bridget executor and executrix and trustees of this my last will and I hereby revoke and make void all former wills and declare these presents to be and contain my last will and testament. In witness whereof I the said testator Pierce Feehan have to this my last will set my hand and seal this sixth day of May Anno Domini one thousand eight hundred and sixty nine, 1869.
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.
