England, Durham Probate Commissions, Monitions and Citations, 1650-1858


Commissions are authorisations to carry out particular acts, usually , in probate cases, to administer an oath to an executor or administrator of an estate. Monitions are normally general summonses issued to kindred or others with an interest in a will or administration of an estate, or else instructions to do or refrain from doing a specific action. Citations are summonses issued usually to a named person but sometimes to anyone concerned, ordering them to appear before a court for some specific purpose. These records are linked to an index on Durham University's website:
