A Collection of Newfoundland Wills
Nathan Mercer


Will of Nathan Mercer
(from Newfoundland will books vol 11 page 47 probate year 1917)

In re Nathan Mercer       deceased

Newfoundland Contingent Copy of "Will" of 2180, Pte N. Mercer July 28/7/16. In the event of my death I give the whole of my property to my father Mr. Elijah Mercer Upper Island Cove Conception Bay, Newfoundland. Signature Pte. Nathan Mercer No. 2180 2/1st Nfld. Reg. Certified True Copy. Newfoundland Contingent F.W. Marshall St. for Paymaster & officer i/c Records

Correct Charles H. Emerson
Registrar of the Supreme Court of Newfoundland.

(Listed in the margin next to this will the following)
Dec 1/17
Kent J.
adm cta
Dec 7/17
granted to
Elijah (Originally Roseanna Haines was on this line but it is crossed out)
Mercer (She is the executrix of the next will in the book, I presume the clerk made an error)
sworn at



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.
