Will of William Warren
This is the last will and testament of me William Warren of Saint John's in the Island of Newfoundland, Gentleman, I direct that out of my personal estate my just debts and funeral expenses shall first be paid and subject thereto I give devise and bequeath all and singular the property which I shall be possessed of or entitled to at the time of my decease or over which I have a disposing power whether the same consists wholly or in part of estates of freehold or for years, money, stock, book and other debts or whatsoever sort or kind the same or any part thereof may be, to my daughter Ann Warren her heirs executors administrators and assigns for ever. I appoint my said daughter executrix and my nephew Henry Warren Seymour of Saint John's aforesaid Grocer executor of this my will hereby revoking all former wills by me ever made.
|Note: The wills in those will books are NOT actual wills. They are either hand-written copies or in later years typed 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.
