Will of John Janes Senior
In the name of God Amen. I John Janes Senior of Broad Cove Conception Bay Newfoundland Planter being of sound mind & memory hereby revoking and disannulling all former wills and testaments by me either really or pretendedly made and do make my last will & testament in manner & form following, viz-
Codicil. That my dwelling house be not included among the items specified in the above will being entirely at the disposal of my dear wife Ann Janes. William Faulkner. Moses Butt Sr. mk. X.
|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.
