In re will of Mary Walsh of Kilbride deceased
This is the last will and testament of me Mary Walsh of Kilbride near St. John's in the Island of Newfoundland married woman.
In witness whereof I have hereunto my hand subscribed the fourth day of July Anno Domini one thousand nine hundred and four. Mary her X mark Walsh. Signed by the said testatrix as and for her last will and testament by making her mark in the presence of us who in her presence at her request and in the presence of each other have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses the same having been first read over and explained. John Vivicombe J. J. McCarthy
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will of Mary Walsh.
(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.
