Will of Eliza Pike
In the Estate of
In the Name of God, Amen, I, Eliza Pike of Carbonear in the Island of Newfoundland, but now about to leave this said place to reside at Poole, Spinster, being of perfect health of body and of perfect mind and memory of my body, do make and ordain this my last will and testament: That is to say principally and first of all, I give and recommend my soul into the hand of Almighty God that gave it and as touching such worldly estate wherewith it hath pleased God to bless me in this life, I give, devise and dispose of the same in the following manner and form:
|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.
