Will of Mary Undry
In the name of God Amen, I Mary Undry of Saint John's in the Island of Newfoundland, Widow, Relict of the late Richard Undry considering the uncertainty of this mortal life and being of sound and perfect mind and memory, blessed be Almighty God for the same, do make and publish this my last will and testament in manner and form following that is to say, I give and bequeath to my beloved friends Michael Meyr and Mary Meyr for and during their and each of their natural lives, all my right, title, interest and claim in and to all my one third part of the rents arising from holdings and property devolving from the intestate estate of my late husband Richard Undry at present leased to John Hawkins but occupied by Rennie & Stuart or their under tenants and James Paul occupied by Edward Dwyer and his under tenants also a garden occupied by Edward Dwyer or any other property that may belong to my late husband all being and situate in saint John's aforesaid to hold to them the said Michael Meyr and Mary Meyr or the survivor of them during their natural lives and at their decease to devolve to the use and behoof of my sons Samuel and Richard mutually or their heirs executors administrators or assigns for ever, appointing and hereby constituting my friend Mr. William Bernard Calver as my sole executor to this my last will and testament hereby revoking all former wills by me made.
|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.
