Will of Abraham Mundy
In re Abraham Mundy deceased.
This is the last will and Testament of me Abraham Mundy of Pouch Cove at present of St. John's revoking all former wills I desire that all monies of which I shall die possessed shall go to my wife Mary Ann Mundy. I give and bequeath to my step son Robert Gillett and to my grandson Abraham Williams in equal shares all the residue of my estate, after paying my just debts, funeral and testamentary expenses consisting of land and house fishing rooms, boats, gear and all other property whatsoever belonging to me at Pouch Cove aforesaid. In the event of the death of either the above named Robert Gillett or Abraham Williams before my death then his share shall go to his widow. I appoint Alexander Grouchy Executor of this my last will.
(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.
