As always, confirm these, as you would any other source material.
Will of Mary Fitzgibbon
from Newfoundland will books volume 12 page 335 probate year 1923
In re MARY J. FITZGIBBON. DECEASED.
This is the last Will and Testament of me, Mary J. Fitzgibbon, of St. John's in the Island of Newfoundland, Married Woman.
I revoke all wills by me at any time previously made, and I appoint my husband, Thomas Fitzgibbon, the executor of this my will.
I give and bequeath to my said husband for his own use absolutely all the property of whatsoever kind I may die possessed, subject to the condition that he is to pay the sum of Five hundred dollars to my niece Madame Brennan, of the Convent of the Sacred Heart, Halifax, Nova Scotia, and to expend the sum of Three hundred dollars for masses for the repose of my soul.
In Witness Whereof I have hereunto subscribed my hand at St. John's aforesaid this twenty seventh day of January in the year of Our Lord One thousand nine hundred and Twenty three. MARY J. FITZGIBBON.
Signed, Published and Declared by the testatrix as and for her last will and testament in presence of us, both being present at the same time, who at her request and in her presence have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses attesting the due execution hereof.
Joseph Fitzgibbon. J. F. Downey.
William F. Lloyd
Registrar of the Supreme Court of Newfoundland
(Listed in the Margin next to this will the following)
Fiat March 20/23
|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.
