The nuncupative will of John Griffiths of Saint John's made this eighteenth day of September 1826 before us and in our presence. It is my will and desire that my wife Ann Griffiths and my children enjoy after my death my property of whatever nature and kind soever according to the law of descent at the exclusion of any other whatever and I declare myself according to the best of my belief to be in sound memory and recollection. John his X mark Griffiths.     Present     Jno Brown Jr.     P. LeMessurier.     Pat Doyle.

Certified correct D.M. Browning
Registrar.

 

 

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.
