I have obtained copies of wills from county and state archives, and transcribed them as well as I could. Please excuse any errors or omissions. Most of the wills here are for surnames of mine, but some are not, or may not be, connected to my own lines. I would very much like to hear from anyone researching any family found here.

Wills are public records; but obtaining, transcribing and html-encoding these was my expense and countless hours of labor. Copying and pasting to your pages is not ethical. LINK to me if you like my content! I'll reciprocate to related, free content, if you wish.

See the index of ENGLISH WILLS.
