Will of Charlotte Roberts
In re Charlotte Roberts deceased
This is the last Will and Testament of me Charlotte Roberts formerly of Burin but now residing at St. Lawrence Widow. I give devise and bequeath to my daughter Susannah Beck all my landed property situate at Burin consisting of Dwelling House Water Side Premises and all other land and property of every kind that I may be possessed of at my decease and I hereby appoint my son in law Jacob Beck of St. Lawrence to be the executor of this my will and I revoke all other previous wills by me at any time made and declare this paper writing to be my last will and testament.
Correct William F. Lloyd
(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.
