In re LEAH WALTERS DECEASED
Know all men by these Presents, That I Leah Walters, relict of the late John Walters of Champneys East, in the District of Trinity, in the Island of Newfoundland; being in ill health but of a sound and disposing mind and memory do make and publish, this my last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills by me at any time heretofore made. And as to my worldly estate, and all the property, real, personal, or mixed, of which I shall die seized and possessed, or to which I shall be entitled at the time of my decease, I devise, bequeath and dispose of in the manner following, to wit
In testimony whereof, I, the said Leah Walters, have to this, my last will and testament, contained in one sheet of paper, subscribed my name and affixed my seal this twentieth day of October in the year of Our Lord One thousand nine hundred and twenty one. LEAH WALTERS.
(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.
