Will of Robert Smyth
In the Estate of
This is the last will and Testament of me, Robert Smyth, of St. John's Customs official, hereby revoking all other and former wills by me at any time made. After the payment of all my just debts, funeral and testamentary expenses, I give devise and bequeath as follows: -
St. John's March 10th 1906 Robert Smyth.
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will and Testament of Robert Smyth 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.
