Index to Bromsgrove Wills, 1700-1858

Until 1858, English wills were proved in the church courts. The fees paid by the executors provided a valuable source of income to the bishop of each diocese. The wills of most of Bromsgrove's testators were therefore proved at Worcester and are now preserved in the Worcestershire Record Office. The Record Office has microfilms of all these wills from which copies can be made. The list given here was compiled by Jenny Townshend of the Bromsgrove Society from the typed indexes available in the Record Office search room.

This section comprises a list of over 1500 wills of Bromsgrove residents from 1700 through to 1858.

Use the Search box to search for names of interest. In the 'Record Type' column, W refers to a Will and A to an Administration.

Full transcripts of some wills are also available but are not yet linked to individual entries. They can be searched here.
