Will of Michael Kelly
In re Michael Kelly deceased
This is the last will and testament of me Michael Kelly, fisherman of Ferryland in the district of Ferryland and in the Southern District of Newfoundland.
In witness whereof I the said Michael Kelly of Ferryland have to this my last will and Testament set my name this 25th day of April in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and four Michael Kelly. Signed by the Testator and acknowledged by him to be his last will and Testament in presence of us, present at the same time who at his request in his presence and in the presence of each other have subscribed our names as witnesses. George Geary witness Richard Delahunty witness
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will of Michael Kelly
(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.
