Will of Abraham Norman from Newfoundland will books volume 7 page 413-414 probate year 1905
The last will of Abraham Norman late Bay Roberts Fisherman, deceased.
In the name of the Father and of the son and of the Holy Ghost Amen. I, Abraham Norman, of Bay Roberts, in the Island of Newfoundland, being sound in mind do on this twenty-sixth day of November in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and four, make my last will and Testament as follows: -
Signed sealed and delivered by the said Abraham Norman in our presence and in the presence of each other this twenty-sixth day of November in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and four. Witnesses James Rell(?) Incumbent of Bay Roberts; George Rappen(?).
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will of Abraham Norman 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.
