Will of Mary Taylor
In re Mary Taylor deceased.
In the name of God, Amen. I Mary Taylor of Carbonear, widow, relict of the late Joseph Taylor of Carbonear Planter being of sound and disposing mind memory and understanding, but being mindful of my mortality do this the twenty third day of November in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty eight make and publish this my last will and Testament in manner and form following that is to say.
(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.
