Go back to the Yorkshire Probate Records page

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 [soon to be constructed].

Below is a list of Yorkshire parishes beginning with the letter S 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:  A, B, C, D, E-F, G, H, I-K, L, M-N, O-P, Q-R, T-U, W, Y.
