Will of Samuel Fiander
In the name of God Amen. I Samuel Fiander being in full possession of my faculties but fearing this night might put an end to my life do ordain this my last will and testament. I bequeath to God a soul polluted by many sins but I hope purified by Jesus Christ. I leave to son Samuel Fiander who is my eldest child one hundred pounds sterling that is now lying in the Consolidated £3 per cent annuities. And likewise all my other effects and property save a suit of new clothes consisting of a jacket vest and trousers which I bequeath to my second eldest son James Fiander. And I appoint the aforesaid Samuel Fiander sole executor of this my last will and testament hereby revoking all former wills and testaments whatever.
|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 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.
