Here is a table of places in Westmorland beginning with the letters N through R. For other parishes, click on a link:
The courts listed for each place are those that had jurisdiction over probating wills prior to 1858. To use this table, follow these steps.
- In the first column, find the place where your ancestor lived.
- In the second column, click on the court name to learn where to find the records and indexes.
- If the record isn't found in the primary court, search the records for the secondary courts in the order listed.
- 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.
