Will of Thomas Sullivan
In re THOMAS SULLIVAN. DECEASED.
This is the last will and testament of me, Thomas Sullivan, present of St. John's and formerly of Elliston in the Island of Newfoundland Forestry Companies. I revoke all former wills by me at any time made, and I appoint Charles O'Neill Conroy, of St. John's aforesaid, Executor of this my will. I give and bequeath to the Reverend Dr. James Greene of St. John's the sum of Forty dollars for his own use, and I request that he will say a Mass or two for the repose of the souls of myself and my deceased wife Johanna. I give and bequeath to Harry Conroy, son of my said Executor, the sum of Twenty dollars, and to Catharine Eagan, daughter of Mary Eagan who was adopted daughter of my brother John, the sum of Twenty dollars, and to Edna Jane Hill, Daughter of James Hill the sum of Twenty dollars. I give and bequeath to Mary Eagan, sister of the said Catharine Eagan, my feather bed. All the rest, residue, and remainder of my property I give and bequeath to the Roman Catholic Episcopal Corporation of St. John's to be expended for Masses for the repose of the souls of myself and my deceased wife Johanna.
(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.
