Thomas Sarell from Newfoundland will books volume 2 pages 61-62 probate year 1851
This is the last will and testament of Thomas Sarell of Broad Cove, Bachelor, and at present employed as a teacher under the Protestant Board of Education for the District of St. John's, Newfoundland. In the name of God Amen, I Thomas Sarell being weak in body but of sound mind and memory (blessed be God) do this twenty seventh day of June in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and fifty one, make & publish this my last will and testament in manner following, I commend my soul into the hands of Almighty God who gave it me, and my body to the earth from whence it was taken in hopes of a joyful resurrection through the merits of my Saviour Jesus Christ, and as for the worldly goods or estate wherewith it hath pleased God to bless me, I dispose of as follows;
|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.
