A Collection of Newfoundland Wills
(M)
Titus William Manuel

 

Will of Titus William Manuel
from Newfoundland will books volume 10 pages 355-356 probate year 1915
(According to this will it was written in 1980, which is obviously an error, probably by the clerk typist of the Supreme Court at the time of probate. The will was likely written in 1880.)
