This is the last will and Testament of me Jane McKay of St. John's in the Island of Newfoundland widow, I hereby revoke all former wills and Testamentary dispositions by me made and declare this to be my last will and Testament. I appoint my sons William McKay and Andrew McKay to be the executors of this my last will and testament. I give devise and bequeath all property of every description of which I may die possessed to my executors upon the following trusts namely
In witness whereof I have hereunto subscribed my name this ninth day of August in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and four. Jane McKay.
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will and testament of Jane McKay, deceased.
(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.
