Will of Annie Kavanagh
In re Annie Kavanagh deceased
This the last will of me Annie Kavanagh of St. John's Newfoundland Spinster and I revoke all former wills by me made. I give devise and bequeath all property of whatsoever kind I shall die possessed of To my unmarried sisters living at my death in equal shares and I appoint my sisters Jane and Rose executors of this my will. If any one or more of my sisters be a widow or widows at my death and in the opinion of my executors or the survivor of them be not as well provided for as the least well off unmarried sister then such widow or widows [as the case may be] shall share in my estate as if such widow or widows were spinsters at my death. In witness whereof I have set my hand to this my will at St. John's aforesaid this 2nd day of August 1919. Annie Kavanagh

(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.
