A Collection of Newfoundland Wills

Will of Mary Fitzgerald
from the Newfoundland will books volume 12 page 84 probate year 1921


This is the last will and testament of me, Mary Fitzgerald of St. John's Widow. I give, devise and bequeath all the property and effects whatsoever I die possessed of to my niece, Annie Bane, now known as Sister Cecilia of the Presentation Convent, Cathedral Square, St. John's, for her sole use and benefit forever, with the sole condition that she must have a Mass celebrated once each month for the repose of my soul and that of my husband, the late Michael Fitzgerald. I appoint Mr. W. J. Carroll of St. John's, Sub-Sheriff, Executor of this, my last will and testament.
Dated at St. John's N.F. this 10th day of April, 1917 MARY FITZGERALD.
Signed by the said Mary Fitzgerald as her last will and testament in the presence of us, present at the same time, who, at her request, in her presence, and in the presence of each other have subscribed our names as witnesses. Mary Halligan.     W.J. Carroll.

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.
