Will of Jacob Wheller
Know all men by these presents that I Jacob Wheller of Twillingate
in the District of Twillingate and Fogo in the Colony of Newfoundland, Planter,
being of sound and disposing mind and memory, do make and publish this my last
will and testament hereby revoking and making null and void all former wills
by me at any time heretofore 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 or typed 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 and also no paragraphs. 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. However, in some of the very long wills, we have tried to insert paragraphs to make it easier for the researcher to read the document.
