Will of Louisa Shepherd
In re Louisa Shepherd deceased.
This is the last will and Testament of Louisa Shepperd widow of Pool's Island in the District of Bonavista in the Island of Newfoundland, I will bequeath and devise that what remains of the money left me by my son Jeremiah Shepherd be equally divided between my children namely, Darius Shepherd. Roseana Winters. Peter Shepherd. Caroline Kean. Jonas Shepherd. Elizabeth Taylor and Eliza Dunlop. I appoint Mr. I.J. Mifflin Magistrate of Greenspond to be my executor.
(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.
