Newfoundland will books volume 3 pages 162-163 probate year 1870.This name is spelled Percy in the will book and Percey on the wills index. No probate year is given, and the court seems to have probated a letter written to his wife, as opposed to an actual will.

Will of William J. Percy



My loving wife in case anything should hapen me I leave you all you will be able to settle with Mr. Currie if there is anything worth while I would like for you to remember my poor father and mother I would mention the sum if I could know what would be left but then I am afraid if such a thing should be there won’t be much left without the vessel should be lost then there would be the insurance on vessel & cargo which would amount to something. I leave all to you But dearest I hope God in his mercy will spare me to see you again if otherwise ordained I trust we shall meet in heaven May God bless you best of wives Nov 3 will sail today or tomorrow Your afectionate William.

Certified correct,

D. M. Browning
