Irish Wills and Testaments in Great Britain 1600-1700


These wills or testaments were probated with the Prerogative Court of Canterbury in England or confirmed by the Commissary Courts of Scotland, generally that of Edinburgh. Some of the documents may pertain to English or Scottish settlers in Ireland, others to residents of Ireland who died in the service of the English crown or aboard English ships, and others to native Irish. The original manuscripts can be located in the Public Record Office in London, or in the Scottish record office in Edinburgh. This is an essential tool in the search for an elusive ancestor in a period for which source material is generally lacking.
