A Collection of Newfoundland Wills
Samuel B. Spence


Will of Samuel B. Spence
from Newfoundland will books volume 10 page 214 probate year 1914
(In two of the wills that were presented to the court for probate on May 1st 1914 the recording clerk wrote “Jessie E” in the margin, in this will and the one immediately following it. The Executrix for this will is clearly stated as A.H. Seymour, so I believe it was probably an error when Jessie E. Seymour was written in the margin next to this will.)

In re
      SAMUEL B. SPENCE. deceased.

      This is the last will and testament of me S.B. Spence of the town of Harbour Grace Nfld Trader.    I devise and bequeath all the real and personal estate to which I shall die in any wise entitled unto my sister Mrs. A. H.
