Will of Patrick Fox
In re Patrick Fox deceased
I, Patrick Fox, of Carbonear do make and ordain this my last will and testament. First I give and bequeath jointly to my son John William Wilford Fox and to my daughter Catherine Mary Frances Fox my dwelling house and shop with all appurtenances, situate on Musgrave Street Carbonear, provided that all income or rent from any part thereof shall be under the control of their mother, my beloved wife Bridget F. Fox who will keep the premises insured, and pay off the three remaining installments of mortgage to Mrs. Maud M. Fraser of St. John's in accordance with the terms of said mortgage, and the said Bridget F. Fox shall have full control and management of said house during the term of her natural life, with all appurtenances. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand this tenth day of February 1916 in presence of Patrick Fox. Signed and delivered by the said Testator as his last will and testament in the presence of us both and of each other, Gideon Benson John Murphy

(Listed in the margin next to this will the following)
|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.
