These are the probate courts that had some jurisdiction over the county of Kent prior to 1858:

  • Court of the Bishop (Episcopal consistory) of Canterbury (BOC)
  • Court of the Archdeaconry of Canterbury (AOC)
  • Courts of the Bishop (Episcopal consistory) and Archdeaconry of Rochester (BAR)
  • Court of the Peculiar of the Archbishop of Canterbury in the Deaneries of the Arches, Croydon and Shoreham (ACS)
  • Court of the Peculiar of the Rector of Cliffe (PRC)
  • Court of the Exempt Jurisdiction of Wingham (EJW)
  • Court of the Prior and Chapter of Christ Church, Canterbury (CCC)
  • Court of the Bishop of London (BOL)
  • Prerogative Court of Canterbury (PCC) (the highest court in the land which had final jurisdiction when necessary, such as in the case of a wealthier person who owned property in more than one area or county, or when a will was appealed.)
  • The Court of Arches (COA) was the appeals courts for the Prerogative Court of Canterbury to which disputed cases could be sent from the lower courts in the province of Canterbury.
  • The High Court of Delegates (HCD) was the final appeals court for disputed cases from both the provinces of Canterbury and York.
