Will of Charlotte Rose
In the name of God Amen, I Charlotte Rose of Great Harbor in Connaigre Bay, Newfoundland, being in perfect health of body and sound mind and memory do make and ordain this my last will and testament, that is to say, I give, demise, bequeath and dispose of all the money and other property of which I am possessed or belonging to me at the time of my decease to my sons Richard Rose, Benjamin Rose and John Rose to be equally divided between them, And I also constitute make and ordain my sons Richard Rose, Benjamin Rose and John Rose joint executors of this my last will and testament and I do utterly disallow revoke and disannul all and every former testaments wills, legacies, bequests and executors by me in any way before named willed and bequeathed ratifying and confirming this and no other to be my last will and testament.
|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.
