'Hunnisett' Wills before 1858

Before 1858 English and Welsh wills were proved either in the local Ecclesiastical Court or in the Perogative Courts of Canterbury or York. Those that survive are generally found in County Record Offices or the National Archives. This page lists those wills I know about and their location. Some of those at the National Archives are downloadable from their site DocumentsOnline. Where extracts from a will are shown elsewhere on this site the link is via the testators name.

 Information given below shows testator; place of residence, date of probate, repository and reference.

If you know of other wills please let me know and I will add them to the list. Similarly, if you know of any wills proved in other countries I would be pleased to hear about them.
