England Gotoarrow.png Yorkshire Gotoarrow.png Yorkshire Probate Records

Below is a list of Yorkshire parishes beginning with the letters Sa through Sk and the pre-1858 courts that had probate jurisdiction over them (due to the large number of parishes beginning with S, more than one parish is listed in a row if the courts are the same).

For other parishes, click on a letter link:

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. The last court to search is the Prerogative Court of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
