Miscellaneous Wills, 1534-19th century

 

A summary of information about wills proved by residents of Frome and nearby villages, kindly transcribed by Jan Glover from the Frome Society for Local Study's slip index.

 

Many of these wills were destroyed in the Exeter Blitz of 1942, notably those from the local ecclesiastical courts which had jurisdiction of probate until 1857. Wills proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury in London generally those of more prosperous executors, but also nonconformists who wished to avoid using the local church courts - have survived. Wills were also copied from 1805-57 so that Estate Duty could be levied (see separate lists). Wills have also survived where transcribed as part of leases or copied by researchers.

 

The Prebendaries of Wells had 'peculiar' jurisdiction of Buckland Dinham and the Lord of the Manor of Witham Friary had peculiar jurisdiction of the Parish until 1827 when it was transferred to Archdeaconry of Wells.

 

In the 17th Century inventories of the goods of the deceased were often taken when the will was proved.

 

The following abbreviations have been used:

 

AC:

Archdeacon's Court

Admon:

Administration (where there is no valid will)

AwW:

Administration with Will annexed

BC:

Bishop's Court

Buckland D:

Frome S:

Leigh/M:

Marston B:

PC:

PCC:

WCC:
