Will of James Rennolls
In the name of God Amen, I James Rennolls of Mulleys Cove Conception Bay, Newfoundland, Planter, being of perfect mind and memory do make this as my last will and testament, viz. I first give my soul into the hands of Almighty God from whom I have received it and my body to the earth from whence it was taken And as to worldly goods with which it has pleased Almighty God to bless me I give and dispose of them in the manner and form 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.
