Will of William Keough
In re William Keough deceased.
This is the last Will and Testament of me, William Keough, of St. John's in the Island of Newfoundland, Cooper. I revoke all former wills by me at any time made, and I appoint my daughter Mary Executrix of this my Will. I give and bequeath to my said daughter Mary for her own use absolutely all the property of whatsoever kind I may die processed, including in particular my leasehold messuage No. 14 Chapel Street, my household furniture, and any cash in Bank or on hand.
Correct William F. Lloyd
(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.
