Will of John G Lucas
In the Estate of
I John G. Lucas of Bay Roberts, in the Island of Newfoundland do make and declare this to be my last will and Testament.
Codicil:- I hereby direct that after my death my large armchair shall be given to Sadie K. Lucas, daughter of my son Thomas Lucas. I now appoint Robert Pittman of Saint John's to be an additional executor for the purpose of attending to the registration of this my last will and Testament. Should his services be required. John G. Lucas. Witness to signature of Codicil John Evans Robert Pittman Bay Roberts October 30th, 1905:
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will and Testament of John G. Lucas with one codicil
(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.
