Will of Edward French from Newfoundland will books volume 1 pages 77 & 78 probate year 1829.
In the name of God Amen. By this my last will and testament, I Edward French, at the Dock, Bearneed, being of sound mind and memory do will and bequeath as follows.
|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.
