Will of James Lynch
In the name of God Amen, I James Lynch of Saint John's Newfoundland Master Marriner, being weake of body but of sound mind and memory do make this my last will and testament, First after all my just debts shall be paid, I will and bequest to my beloved wife all moneys and all other property of mine that I shall be possessed of at the time of my death and I do hereby appoint my beloved wife sole adminstratrix to this my last will and testament.
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 or typed 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.
