In re JOHN PHIPPARD. DECEASED.
This is the last Will and Testament of me John Phippard of the Quarry Placentia in the County of Newfoundland Postmaster made this Nineteenth day of May in the year of Our Lord One thousand nine hundred and Nineteen. I hereby revoke all wills made by me at any time heretofore. I appoint my wife Mary Catherine Phippard and Albert J. Ryan Placentia aforesaid, Railway Agent to be my executors, and direct that all my debts and Funeral Expenses shall be paid as soon as conveniently may be after my decease. I give and bequeath unto my wife Mary Catherine Phippard all my real Estate and personal property consisting of two meadows and strip of pasture land known as "Brewley" and all the Cattle thereon. My house and furniture and three blocks of beach together with outhouses situate at the Quarry Placentia, one garden and a small strip in the square Placentia and all monies accruing to me from Life Insurance or other sources. JOHN PHIPPARD.
(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.
