Last Wills and Testaments
The following is a list of the wills, or abstracts, acquired by me during my research. I have copies of them all and one day, I hope to put up my own transcriptions of all of them on this site. The majority of them were downloaded from The National Archives: Documents Online. Others have been obtained through the relevant County Record Offices. There are yet more to be purchased!
