Historical Background

The Court of the Peculiar of the Manor of Pattingham held jurisdiction over the parish of Pattingham in Staffordshire. The peculiar's jurisdiction extended to the small Shropshire portion of the Rudge Township. When a search of this court's probate records fail to provide the desired probate record, be sure to search the Consistory Court of Lichfield as well as the Prerogative Court of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

You can also visit The Family History Library, or, one of its 4,500 satellite family history centers worldwide and search indexes (see the Family History Library's cataloged entries providing the microfilms so you can have them circulated to the center near you for searching the wills). The information obtained from the index[es] will help you more quickly search the wills and admons which can also be circulated on microfilm via any family history.

Probate Indexes

Surviving wills and admons to the Court of the Peculiar of the Manor of Pattingham had to some extent been indexed with the following ones:

Original Handwritten Indexes

There is an index (manuscript) covering most if not all wills in Staffordshire including both the Consistory Court of Lichfield and also this smaller or peculiar court.

Microfilmed Indexes at the Family History Library<br>

The indexes as listed in the above are also available in the collection of The Family History Library and they are on microfilm and may be circulated to each of its satellite Family History Centers worldwide.

In addition, the Family History Library has a more comprehensive microfilmed set of Calendars of probate records which partially indexes the surnames (by first letter of surname only) available for the years from 1492 to 1860.

Amazingly, the Lichfield Archives has alphabetically arranged many of the diocesan wills by each letter of each surname as well (see the next section below).
