A Collection of Newfoundland Wills
Patrick Foley


Will of Patrick Foley
from the Newfoundland will books volume 12 page 91 probate year 1921


May 27th 1906

I patrick Foley of sound mind and senses do now bequeath to my son Peter all my lands and property, within and without, except one meadow, that is the lonf meadow by the brook. I want three shares made of said meadow two shares for Peter the other share to go to my grandson Patrick Lundrigan. There is a yearly crop of three tons of hay on this meadow. I want said Patrick Lundrigan to sell his share of this hay yearly until he raises enough of money to buy a headstone for me, after that he can claim both the hay and his share of the meadow I want my son Peter to give 16 (Sixteen Dollars) for masses for me, he can give 8 (eight dollars) yearly for two years. My son William got his share of the ground and Cattle when he was married and also took all the fishing gear that I had at that time. So he need not expect or claim anything more.

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.
