Will of Dennis Regan
In the name of God Amen. I Dennis Regan of Saint John's in the Island of Newfoundland being sick of body but of perfect mind memory and understanding I request that all my debts be paid and that my body be decently interred and to be buried in the Cemetery, I will and bequeath to the Revd Father O'Donnell the sum of twenty shillings currency, to my sister Mary Regan of Bearhaven Castle Town in the County Cork the residue of my money. I do appoint and nominate Mr. Dennis Sullivan executor to this my last will and testament hereby revoking and annulling all other wills made by me.
|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.
