Will of Neil McDougall
This is the last will and testament of me Neil McDougall of St. John’s Oil Clothes Manufacturer I give and bequeath all my property and estate real and personal to my wife Laura Jane for her own sole separate and absolute use and benefit and I appoint her executrix of this my will. Witness my hand at Saint John’s this sixteenth day of October A.D. one thousand eight hundred and seventy-six-
Neil MacDougall. Signed published and delivered by the said Neil McDougall as and for his last will in the presence of J.S. Winter, William Boyd.
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.
