A Calendar of Wills Proved in the Consistory Court of the Bishop of Gloucester - Vol. 1 - 1541-1650


Cat No.:   GB0080:

A calendar of wills lists the name and place of each person who left the will. (Not the full details). They are an invaluable aid for family historians, as most of the wills are preserved at either the Gloucestershire Record Office or the Bristol Record Office, from which copies may be ordered. Note: wills between 1653 and 1660 were proved at London, and are therefore not included in these volumes.

The books contain complete name indexes, and also place indexes, and in for example, volume 1, there are references to approximately 23,000 wills.

See GB0099 for Volume 2
