A Collection of Newfoundland Wills
As always, confirm these, as you would any other source material.
Will of Patrick McGrath
from Newfoundland will books volume 12 pages 541-542
probate year 1924
PATRICK MCGRATH. DECEASED.
This is the last Will and Testament of me Patrick McGrath, of St.
John’s, Newfoundland, Cooper.
I appoint my brothers, John, Thomas and Leo McGrath of
to be the executors of this my last Will and Testament.
I leave to my said executors all property, real and personal, whereof
I may die possessed, IN TRUST for the benefit of my wife Hannah
McGrath and my four children: Kenneth Patrick McGrath,
Annie McGrath, John McGrath and Thomas McGrath.
I direct that my executors shall manage and invest my said property
at the best rate of interest which can safely be obtained and pay over
the interest thereupon to my said wife so long as she shall live and
remain unmarried, provided always that she shall provide a home for
such of the children as are unable fully to support themselves. In
the event of the said interest not being reasonably sufficient for
the maintenance of my said wife and dependents, I authorise my executors
to expend from time to time in addition to the interest, such portion
of the capital as they may deem necessary.
- In case of the death or re-marriage of my said wife or her refusal
to provide a home for dependent children as aforesaid, the said executors
shall hold the remainder of the capital in trust for my said children,
and pay over the interest to them in such shares as my said executors
may deem proportioned to their respective needs, until such time
as the youngest of them shall have attained the age of twenty-one years,
when the remainder of the capital shall be equally divided among
them. PATRICK MCGRATH.
Signed and declared by the said testator as and for his last will and
testament in the presence of us who in his presence and in the presence of
each other did sign our names as subscribing witnesses thereto.
William F. Lloyd
Registrar of the Supreme Court of Newfoundland
