Wills

Border

The 'Wills' are of five types. a) Transcripts, b) Abstracts, c) Copies from Microfilm, d) Seen 'Will' microfilm and extracted base information, e) 'Will' listed in an index and not seen or is unreadable.
As at September 2013, about 610 'Wills' of Family Group Names have been identified (including 20 Administrations). The site holds a) 166 Transcripts (including 98 with Copies), b) 36 Abstracts (including 23 with Copies), c) 77 Copies without transcripts, d) 64 'Read to some level' and e) 259 no details seen or unreadable.

A lot of 'Wills' do NOT have a transcript but over time hopefully this situation will be improved. Wherever possible I try to show an original copy of the Will' with a transcript. This then enables any later queries to be resolved. NOTE: If anyone reading this page has a Transcript or a good copy of any of the 'Wills' mentioned then I would be very thankful for a copy.

'Wills' have been cross referenced to/from Family Group pages in this site (but in a few cases the link has yet to be established).

The Wills are grouped into two sections. For each Family Group Name 'Summaries of the Wills' identified are provided and from these one can access the Transcript or Copy if held.

Summaries of Wills of Browne's

These are shown in alphabetic forename/date order. For shortcut, click on appropriate first letter of the forename (if forename letter not shown then no Will details are held).
