Notes

The Prerogative Court of Canterbury which acted as the foremost probate court in the land from its seat in Doctors' Commons in London, was the only probate court entitled to issue grants of probate and administration relating to English and Welsh subjects dying abroad who had assets in England. The wills abstracted in this volume represent, therefore, the widest spectrum of contemporary society, from dynastic families with vast landed estates in the American colonies to illiterate soldiers and sailors, both British and colonial, who died in the preservation or extension of the borders of the Empire, leaving wages to a wife, sweetheart or mother.

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.
