Search Wills
  • Some wills have been directly linked to these records and can be displayed by clicking on the 'click here for full text' link. If this doesn't work or the incorrect will is displayed then please report the problem!
  • Alternatively the transcription of the will can be found by following the link on the apppropriate parish page, see and then scroll down to the wills section.
  • The wildcard (%) is applied by default to the right hand side of some search terms. To obtain more results, keep your search terms to a minimum e.g. to find all variations for Stephen, search for 'St' in the forename field.
  • Parish names should be entered as in other searches e.g. 'Juliot, St.' rather than 'St Juliot' but  'Jul' would be sufficient
  • Before 1752 the year began in March, so there might be a few instances where the date of proving appears to be before the date the Will was written.
 Search for exact surname (no wildcard)  ?
Search for exact surname: By default the search facility adds a wildcard (%) to the end of the surname to return more results. If you want to search for an exact surname, tick this box and the wildcard search will be disabled.
 Include similar surnames  ?
Include Similar Surnames: Ticking this option will search for any surnames that have a similar sounding name to your search, based on the Soundex algorithm. This only works if the surname you've entered is more than 2 characters. It may also slow down your search.
 Include nearby parishes  ?
Include Nearby Parishes: Ticking this option will include any parishes that are deemed to be near to the one you're searching for. This will only work if you've specified the exact parish. It will also only work if there are any parishes registered as near to the one you're searching for.
