Will of Mary Tucker
In re Mary Tucker deceased
In the name of God Amen. I Mary Tucker at present residing in Port de Grave Newfoundland being of sound mind and memory do make and declare this to be my last will & testament. In primis I commend my soul into the hands of Almighty God in the hope of a joyful resurrection thro' Jesus Christ my Saviour.
In witness whereof I the said testator Mary Tucker have set my hand and seal hereunto the 24th day
May in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred & twenty eight. Mary her X mark Tucker [LS]

|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.
