Notes

Microfilm of original records in the Guildhall Library, London.

There are no original or register copy wills for the years 1502-1516.

The first seven registers of copy wills (1374-1488) contain both wills, probate acts and acts of administration as well as a number of non-testamentary entries. In the year 1489 the registration of wills is separated from the probate acts and acts of administration.

Original wills, 1579-1649 are arranged chronologically. Starting in 1728 the wills are usually arranged by year, month, then alphabetically by the first letter of the surname. Some wills are filed out of sequence, but have been noted whenever possible. If you don't find the will in the place it should be, check through all the wills for that year.

For abstracts to some of the register copy wills in the London Division, see: Abstracts of copy wills, Commissary Court of London, registered wills, 1750-1857, in the Author/Title catalog.

If the probate document you want is not found among the records of this court, search the next highest jurisdiction: -----.

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.
