Index of Baltimore County, Maryland Wills, 1659-1850


This index was compiled using several sources: the index of wills at the Baltimore City Court House, a partial index to the wills compiled by the late Annie Walker Burns, the original Will Books at the Hall of Records in Annapolis, and the abstracts of Will Books, numbers 4 through 23, compiled by Mrs. Burns at the Maryland Historical Society. The advantages of this index over the court house index and Mrs. Burns's partial index are first, that the entries in this index are in alphabetical order; second, that every effort has been made to correct mistakes in spelling made by the compilers of the court house index; and third, this index contains wills not indexed at the court house. This work contains approximately 8000 entries, giving the name of the testator, the year the will was probated, and the book and page number on which the will can be found.
