Will of Henry Robert Hebditch
In re Henry Robert Hebditch deceased
This is the last Will and Testament of Henry Robert Hebditch of
Lamaline in the Southern District of Newfoundland Fisherman. I give
devise and bequeath the house I now live in to my wife Alice May
Hebditch, while she remains my widow, and with the understanding
that my Mother Ann Hellier and my sister Bridget Rose Hebditch,
are to have a home in it while they live, and any property owned
by me may be so sold by my Executor hereinafter named for their support,
only however when they are in absolute need of it. And lastly I constitute
and appoint C. C. Pitman, Esquire as Executor of this my last
(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.
