Will of Catherine Scanlan
In the Estate of
This is the last will and Testament of me Catherine Scanlan of St. John's in the Island of Newfoundland widow. I revoke all former wills by me at any time made, and I appoint my son Edward G. Scanlan the sole executor of this my will. I give and bequeath to my said son Edward G. Scanlan all my property of every kind whatsoever. As witness my hand at St. John's aforesaid this ninth day of September AD 1905. Catherine Scanlan.
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will and Testament of Catherine Scanlan deceased
(Listed in the margin next to this will)
|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.
