Will of Philip Holmes Jackson
In re PHILIP HOLMES JACKSON. DECEASED.
This is the last will of me Philip Holmes Jackson of Cavendish
T.B. Electoral District of Trinity, a fisherman. I give, devise and
bequeath all my real and personal estate of every description, Land
with 153 feet of water front, also my house & its contents to
my Grandson Thomas Jackson absolutely. I appoint Mr. Edward
Ethiel Bishop to be Executor of this my will and I revoke all
previous wills by me at any time herebefore made and declare this
writing to be my last will & 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.
