Collected Transcribed Wills

As part of my research into family history I have come across a substantial number of wills – some used to check facts, some used to challenge hypothesised relationships and some used simply to try to find references through people in the same place at the same time (the proverbial needle-in-a-haystack approach).

In the table below, select the number of entries you would like to view (I tend to choose ALL), and then sort by date or search for any particular name you are looking for (e.g., Wynch) – happy hunting.

Where the TAGS column has a number in it, this identifies that the testator was a direct ancestor of my daughter and, by working backwards from the first character, it shows 1 (father) or 2 (mother) in preceding generations. The number of characters represents the number of generations back from my daughter.
