Charmouth Wills

WILLS, ADMINISTRATIONS & INVENTORY'S

This index contains an extracted list of persons 'of Charmouth' who left wills, letters of administration or inventories to be found with the Probate Registry at Blandford Dorset, Archdeaconry Court of Dorset up to 1793. The names are extracted from indexes found in publications at the Dorset Record Office and elsewhere. Copies of these documents should be available from the Dorset Record Office.

Note that this index does not cover the period from the 1790's to 1858. 

Wills proven in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, can be accessed on the PRO site Documents On Line. The wills can be downloaded from this site for 3.00 each. Wills are now on-line from the 15th century.

Note: this is not a complete list of wills made by Charmouth residents. Wills may have been proved in places other than the Archdeaconry Court of Dorset or PCC, for example at the Exeter Archdeaconry Court.  From 1858 all wills were indexed centrally and this index is widely available at Record Offices, Probate Registries and the LDS.
