Will of Adam Power
(From FHL Film #2070901 Newfoundland Supreme Court Wills 1929-1932)
I Adam Power of Channel Newfoundland in the District of Burgeo and LaPoile being of sound mind and memory do make and publish this my last will and testament in manner and form following. That is to say.
Signed ADAM POWER.
Signed by the testator in our presence and declared by him to be his last will and testament who in his presence and in the presence of each other have hereunto set our hand as witnesses thereof this fourth day of May in the year of Our Lord one thousand nin hundred and twenty nine.
[Handwritten note in right margin]
|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.
