Will of Ruth Sydney Holbrook from Newfoundland will books volume 2 page 110 probate year 1852
This is the last will of me Ruth Sydney Holbrook of St. John's Widow. I give devise and bequeath all my estate real and personal and all my property of every description to my daughter Sydney and her heirs for ever and I appoint her sole executrix of this my will.
|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.
