Edward Pike, 1852 (proved in 1859)

The following is a transcript of a photocopy of the will of Edward Pike as recorded on pages 94-95 of Volume 15 of the deeds volumes from the "Northern District", held at the Registry of Deeds at the Confederation Building in St. John's. This transcript was made on 07 May 2008.
If you came to this page directly, then you might want to know that I have additional Pike information on my website.

Also, if you are a male Pike/Pyke (or you know one) who may be willing to do a genealogical DNA test, then please check out the Pike DNA Project for which I am a volunteer coordinator. There are several Pike/Pyke families that are not yet represented in the project, and for whom participants are wanted.
