Know all men by these presents that I Edward Stephen Percey Senr of Brigus Conception Bay in the Island of Newfoundland Planter for and in consideration of my son Stephen Percey and grandson Edward Stephen Percey or either of them maintaining and clothing me in a decent manner during the remainder of my days and at my death burying me also decently I give and bequeath unto them or either of them all and singular my land property with all the erections thereon and all my waterside premises with stage and flakes my household furniture, beds, bedding, goods and effects whatsoever and by these present do give and bequeath unto them or either of them all my right and title in and to the same Signed as witness my hand and seal at Brigus aforesaid this sixteenth day of June one thousand eight hundred and fifty five.
Note: The wills in those will books are NOT actual wills. They are either hand-written copies or in later years typed copies of a, "last will and testament," written or typed 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.
