A Collection of Newfoundland Wills
John Valentine



Will of John Valentine
from the Newfoundland will books volume 12 page 125 probate year 1921


This is the last Will of me, John Valentine of 3 Allan Square, St. John's Newfoundland. I devise and bequeath all my estate and effects, real and personal, which I may die possessed of or entitled to, unto my wife Emma Jane Valentine, absolutely. I appoint my wife Emma Jane Valentine sole Executrix. JOHN VALENTINE
signed by the Testator in the presence of us, both present at the same time who in his presence and in the presence of each other have hereunto set our names as witnesses.
Wm. Churchill.    S. A. Churchill.
Dated At St. John's this 10th day of February 1906.

William F. Lloyd
Registrar of the Supreme Court of Newfoundland

(Listed in the Margin next to this will the following)
Fiat Nov 18/21
Horwood C.J.
Probate granted
to Emma Jane
Nov 21/21.
Estate sworn
at $900.00



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.
