Will of Mary Walsh
In the name of God Amen. I Mary Walsh of the town of Saint John's in the Island of New found land Widow to the late Walter Walsh Cooper being sound in body and of perfect mind and memory and considering the uncertainty of this mortal life do make and publish this my last will and testament in manner and form following, that is to say, I give and bequeath unto Richard Bulger son to Philip Bulger Cooper all that leasehold granted in the year 1813 by the Governor R. G. Keats measures about 22 acres bounded at the north side by Patricks pinch bounded south by the Wigmore Gulley north north west one hundred yards then south ninety yards to the river where it extends about one hundred and thirty yards to the road first mention'd, therefore I do make this my last will and testament revoking any other made or mention'd at any time and now I do declare this to be my last will and testament
|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.
