Will of James Jacobs
The Last Will and Testament of James Jacobs fisherman of Hard Islands of the Northern District of Newfoundland.
I James Jacobs considering the uncertainty of life, and being of sound mind and memory, do make and publish this my last Will and Testament, in manner and form following, that is to say.
First, I will and bequeath to my wife, (after all my just debts are paid,) all and whatsoever property I may die possessed of, for her sole use and benefit, as long as she remains unmarried, but in case she should marry again the said property to pass to my son William Henry, and at the close of my wifes death, all my property to pass to my son William Henry.
Lastly I appoint Ernest Edmund Hyde as my Executor to see the provisions of this my Will and Testament carried out, as witness this my hand at Fogo aforesaid this 18th day of November 1903.
Signed by the said James Jacobs the Testator, in the presence of us, who in the presence of each other, at the same time subscribe our names as witnesses.
Ernest E. Hyde.
