Notes

Microreproduction of original published: [England] : Northumberland and Durham Family History Society, c1994-1998. 5 v.

Header title from volume 1 (1787-1791): Personal names in Durham wills

The volume for 1792-1794 was compiled by J.A. Readdie, P.R.G. Thirkell and G. Nicholson. The volumes for 1795-1797, 1798-1800, 1801-1803 were compiled by Philip R. G. Thirkell.

The wills covered in these volumes were proved in the Consistory Court of the Bishop of Durham. "At this period the Diocese covered nearly all of the counties of Northumberland and Durham, the main exception being the area known as Hexhamshire... Also outside the jurisdiction of the Bishop of Durham was the parish of Thockrington... There were some areas outside Northumberland and Durham which came under the administration of the Bishop of Durham's Consistory Court, namely, Alston with Garrigill in Cumberland; Crayke in North Yorkshire, and the peculiar of Allertonshire which covered the parishes and chapelries of Birkby, Cowesby, Hutton Bonville, Leake, Nether Silton, North Otterington, Osmotherley, and Thornton-le-Street. The probate records realting to the Dean and Chapter of Durham's peculiar of Allerton and Allertonshire are also kept by Durham University Library Archives and Special Collections but are held and indexed separately from the main series and are therefore not included in this volume."--Introd.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
