Will of Elizabeth Smith
In re the Estate of Elizabeth Smith deceased
I Elizabeth Smith wife of the late Alfred Smith deceased of Cupids Conception Bay in the Island of Newfoundland, being of sound mind and memory, do make publish and declare this my last will and Testament in manner following that is to say,
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this sixth day of April in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and eighty-nine Elizabeth her X mark Smith (LS)
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will and testament of Elizabeth Smith
(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.
