Will of George Robert Jenkins
In re GEORGE ROBERT JENKINS. DECEASED.
The Will of George R. Jenkins.
This is the last Will and Testament of George Robert Jenkins of North Side Western Bay Bay De Verde District Nfld. I hereby devise and bequeath to my son Hedley Bartlett Jenkins for his own use and benefit absolutely and forever all my estate and effects both real and personal whatsoever and wheresoever and of what nature and quality soever, as follows Dwelling shop Outhouses lands including half of the long Pinch Garden. I hereby appoint Alex Sellars and James Taylor to be Executors of my Will.
(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.
