Will of Jane Taylor
In the name of God Amen, I Jane Taylor of Cupids Conception Bay in the Island of Newfoundland Widow this fifteenth day of September in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and fifty two do make this my last will and testament revoking all other and former wills in the name and form following, First I commit my soul into the hands of the Almighty God and my body to be buried at the discretion of my executors to be hereafter named. And for my real and personal estate I give and dispose thereof in manner and form 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.
