Will of Simon Glendenning
The last will of Simon Glendenning late of St. John's farmer deceased
This is the last will and Testament of me Simon Glendenning of St. John's in the Island of Newfoundland Farmer
I hereby appoint Mr. Samuel Bancock of Topsail road Farmer to be executor of this my last will and Testament. St. John's September 19th 1899. Simon Glendenning
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will of Simon Glendenning
(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.
