Will of Sarah Forward
Grand Bank, Nfl; July 23, 1870. To all to whom it may concern This is the last will and testament of Sarah Forward widow of the late John Forward Planter of Grand Bank Newfoundland. The said Sarah Forward being of sound mind and inbiased by any one. I give & bequeath to Frances Jane my eldest daughter half the land of all I posses. And to Eleanor Lemon my youngest daughter the other half of the land & the dwelling house on which I now reside. In attestation hereof I here affix my name,
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.
