Here is a table of Surrey places beginning with the letter A and the pre-1858 courts that had probate jurisdiction over them.  For other places, click on a letter link:

B, C, D-F, G-K, L-N, O-R, S-U, V-Z.

The courts listed for each place are those that had jurisdiction over probating wills prior to 1858. To use this table, follow these steps.

  1. In the first column, find the place where your ancestor lived.
  2. In the second column, click on the court name to learn where to find the records and indexes.
  3. If the record isn't found in the primary court, search the records for the secondary courts in the order listed.
  4. If the record still isn't found, search the records for the Prerogative Court of the Archbishop of Canterbury.


If no will is found, your ancestor may not have left one.
