Will of John Hulett
In re John Hulett deceased.
I John Hulett of Roberts Arm Notre Dame Bay Newfoundland being of sound mind do make this my last will and testament. To my wife Rebecca Hulett I bequeath all money in my possession at the time of my death with all other property such as cattle houses, lands and all and everything now in my possession to be hers during her natural life after the death of my beloved wife Rebecca Hulett all property remaining shall belong to my two sons Israel Hulett and Samuel Hulett in equal shares. I do appoint Israel Hulett as guardian of his brother Samuel to be cared and provided for during his life and no business of any kind to be transacted without the consent of his brother Israel as my son Samuel is of unsound mind and incapable of transacting any business. Should my son Israel Hulett die before my son Samuel and the sons of Israel Hulett fail to provide for Samuel I do by these presents direct that my executor divide the property giving the sons of my son Israel Hulett an equal share and holding the other half to be dealt with by them as they may determine except to sell. I do further direct that after the death of my son Samuel Hulett his share shall be handed over to the sons of Israel Hulett and equally divided among them. I do appoint George Warr of Pilley's Island and John Shearing of same place to be sole executors of this my last will and testament
(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.
