Will of Thomas Quinlan from Newfoundland will books volume 2 pages 60-61 probate year 1851
In the name of God Amen, the twentieth day of February one thousand eight hundred and thirty six. I Thomas Quinlan of the Harbour of North Brigus Conception Bay, Cooper, being very sick and weak of body but of perfect mind and memory thanks be given unto God therefore calling unto mind the mortality of my body knowing it is appointed unto all men to die 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 hands of almighty God that gave it and my body I recommend to the earth to be buried in decent Christian burial nothing doubting but at the general resurrection I shall receive the same again by the almighty power of God,
|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.
