County of Norfolk
to wit.

I Albert Hamilton Backhouse of the Village of Port Rowan in the County of Norfolk, student at law, make out and say:

1. That the paper writing herefuno annexed is a true copy of the last will and testament of Jacob Van Volkingburgh late of the Township of Woodhouse in the County of Norfolk, yeoman.

[thereafter the name of the testator changes from Jacob to Joseph, probably in error.  However each instance of Joseph is underlined.  Perhaps a clerk underlined the error after the fact]

2. That I was personally present and did see the last will and testament of the said Joseph Van Volkingburh decased duly signed sealed and executed by the said Joseph Van Volkingburg at the Township of Woodhouse in the County of Norfolk.
