Will of James Linegar
In the name of God Amen, The last will and testament of me James Linegar of Saint John's in the Island of Newfoundland Fisherman whereby I give and bequeath unto my beloved wife Ellen all property of whatsoever description or kind, household furniture dwelling houses and interest in all such leasehold property as I may be possessed of at the time of my death And I hereby nominate and appoint my beloved son William Linegar executor of this my last will and testament.
Given under my hand and seal at Saint John's aforesaid this eighth day of March Anno Domini eighteen hundred and fifty.
|Note: The wills in those will books are NOT actual wills. They are either hand-written copies or in later years typed 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.
