Will of Joseph Peers
In re Joseph Peers deceased
To those whom it may concern I, Joseph Peers of Liverpool England residing at Heart's Content. Do bequeath all my personal and real estate to my son Theodore Peers and after his decease the estate must go to his wife as long as she remains single, but if she marries again the estate must be equally divided among the sons, and if any daughters unmarried they are to do all in their power to support them, failing to do this the estate must be equally divided among the sons and daughters if no son living the estate must be equally divided among his daughters
Correct William F. Lloyd
(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.
