Will of Mary Ryan
In re Mary Ryan deceased
This is the last Will and Testament of me Mary Ryan of Saint John's in the Island of newfoundland Widow.
Witness my hand at Saint John's aforesaid this 22nd day of november Anno Domini One thousand nine hundred and Seventeen. Mary Ryan.
(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.
