While I have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors
Newfoundland will books volume 3 page 223 probate year 1834.
|Will of Michael Neill|
In re MICHAEL NEILL: DECEASED.This name is spelled Michael and Micheall in the will, and Michael in the will index. The probate year given in the index is 1834, presumably this is an error as the will was not written till 1861, and it is in the index for the year 1871.
