A Collection of Newfoundland Wills
John C. Williams



Will of John C. Williams
from the Newfoundland will books volume 12 page 171 probate year 1922


This is the last Will and Testament of me, John C. Williams of Cape Broyle, gentleman. I hereby revoke all former wills by me at any time made and declare this to be my last will. I appoint Ellen Targett sole executrix of this my will. I will and bequeath to my said daughter in law Ellen Targett, all and whatsoever land property, monies, goods and effects of which I may die possessed.
In witness whereof I have hereunto subscribed my hand at St. John's this 27th day of May 1919. JOHN C. WILLIAMS.
Signed, published and declared by the testator as his last will and testament in our presence who in his presence and in the presence of each other have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses. CHAS. E. HUNT.    M. KEPPIE.

William F. Lloyd
Registrar of the Supreme Court of Newfoundland

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.
