Before 1858, every town and parish in Yorkshire fell under the probate jurisdiction of a primary court and several secondary courts.  For an authoritative treatise on each Yorkshire probate court and the parishes comprising them in pre-1858, see Anthony J. Camp's publication, Wills and Their Whereabouts; also available at the Family History Library, FHL book #942 S2wa

When looking for the will of an ancester, you should search the courts in the order given. Search indexes first. For indexes, click on the court name links above [soon to be constructed].
