Notes

Microfilm of original records at Somerset House, Strand, London.

The register giving film numbers of the calendar of the grants of probate is located at the British Register table, call no. 942 S2cp 1989.

Wills are arranged from January to December of each year by the first letter of the surname. Within each year or film, wills are arranged according to court and month. Courts fall alphabetically within each month. Surnames are not listed alphabetically, however, within each court. Example: The last name you are seeking is Rumble, and you know that the will was probated in 1859 (must know the year of the probate). Locate, below, the letter R succeeded by the year 1859. If "R" takes up 2 or more lines, locate the line in which the month of the will (in this case May) falls. This probate should be located on film no. 1278987. When looking at the film, locate the month, then the court (alphabetically listed within each month). All surnames which begin with the letter R are listed for the specific court in consecutive order (not alphabetical).

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.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

We will use this information to improve our records.
