Will of Albert Lee Berteau
In the Estate of
This is the last will and Testament of me Albert LeC Berteau of Saint John's in the Island of Newfoundland, Barrister at Law. I give and bequeath all my estate of whatsoever kind or nature unto my beloved wife for her sole separate and absolute use and behoof. I hereby revoke all wills at any time heretofore made and I appoint my wife Executrix of this my last will and testament.
In witness whereof I have hereunto subscribed my name at St. John's aforesaid this 30th day of March in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and five. A. Le C. Berteau.
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will and Testament of Albert LeC Berteau deceased
(Listed in the margin next to this will)
|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.
