Hughesville January 28 1917 To my Children I wish Constance to have my Tea Coffe service. All old family portraits & old China & linen now in Earls's house in St. John's, Earl to have his Father's watch, Bookcase & books Silver masonic tray & all furniture now in his house belonging belonging (I presume the second belonging is an error) to me Francis to have my diamond ring, large silver tray & six salt sellers now in Earls house in St. John's Nfld. The rest of my moneys in Government Savings Bank in St. John's & all other money I possess to be divided equally between Constance and Francis. A work box of mine now in Earls house in St. John's I want Constance to have with the things inside of it, also an old Bible, belonging to Oliver Cromwells Secretary, & a very old English history, Yours affect. Mother Blanche Pinsent

(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.
