In re the estate of
This is the last will and testament of me Mary Mitchell of St. John's in the Island of Newfoundland widow I appoint Timothy Mitchell of St. John's aforesaid Doctor of Medicine as sole executor of this my will. I give devise and bequeath to my said executor all my estate of whatsoever kind or nature of which I may be possessed at the time of my death In trust for the maintenance and support of my daughter Gertrude with full power to him to invest any and all moneys in whatsoever manner as he may deem best.
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will and testament of Mary Mitchell
(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.
