Will of George Poole
In re George Poole deceased
The last will and Testament of George Poole of Channel N.F. I George Poole of Channel Newfoundland in the District of Burgeo and LaPoile do make and publish this my last Will and Testament in manner and form following. That is say
- Signed George Poole - Signed by the Testator in the presence
of us who in his presence & in the presence of each other have hereunto
set our names as witnesses this first day of June 1911
Correct Charles H. Emerson
(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.
