Here is a list of the parishes of Kent and the primary probate courts that had jurisdiction over each.

There were also secondary courts with jurisdiction. They will be added at a later time.

The highest court in the land was the Prerogative Court of Canterbury and it would have 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. Most wills were proved in the courts of primary jurisdiction.

Go to the article on England probate records for more information.
