Will of James Noseworthy
In the Estate of
In the name of God, Amen, I James Noseworthy of Spaniards Bay, do make and ordain this my last will and Testament. I give and bequeath the small Garden at Green Head to my sons George and Richard George to have the east part, and Richard the west part; the remainder of my property, I give and bequeath to my son George, his heirs and assigns; but should my son James who is now in the United States, or his sons, or any one of them, return to settle down and live here he or they shall occupy and possess that part of my property which he my son James occupied before he left home. If my sons James or his sons do not come back to settle down here the whole of the said property will be held by my son George his heirs and assigns.
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will and testament of James Noseworthy.
(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.
