The details shown were extracted from the printed volumes held at the Probate Dept of the Principal Registry Family Division, at First Avenue House, 42-49 High Holborn, London WC1V 6NP. We have added the notes in the right hand column to explain who we believe the persons are who are named in the summary. However, there could be further information in the actual Wills or Administrations themselves.
You can order copies of the original Wills and/or Administrations themselves EITHER by visiting the above office in person (copies cost £5.00 and are sent to the department by fax within about an hour), or by post from The Probate Office, Castle Chambers, Clifford St, York, YO1 9RG.
