Will of Ann Flavin
I Ann Flavin of Saint John's Newfoundland being of sound and disposing mind memory and understanding do this eight day of April in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty four make this my last will and testament in manner and form following I give and bequeath to my daughter Eliza Ann Flavin all my right title and interest forever in all houses lands tenements household furniture goods chattels &c. the same being one third of the estate of my husband the late Roger Flavin deceased, together with two feather beds and I do hereby constitute and appoint John Vinicomb now residing in Saint John's Newfoundland my sole executor to his my last will and testament hereby revoking all former wills and testaments by me at any time heretofore made,
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.
