Ecclesiastical Court 1635-1858: Wills

Here is a list of wills that can be found on the National Library of Wales website.  I am going to try and work through transcribing these.

Each will below has a link to the original document (at the NLW), my transcription, and a summary of people, places and where given the date the testator died.

Please note, all transcriptions are a work in progress and contain many spaces and maybe errors. Please use the transcription as a guide only. Each line is numbered.  Where I have been unable to read a word, then I have left three dots (…) and when a cannot read a letter, this is denoted by one dot (.).  I have kept to original spelling.  If you wish to contribute towards transcribing and/or you have corrections to make, please contact me.

One Response to “Ecclesiastical Court 1635-1858: Wills”
  1. Julie Daniels says:

    I am trying to get some information about my great great grandfather Edward Edwards. He married a Mary Hamer son of Henry Hamer who in turn was the son of Mary Ashton daughter of Andrew Ashton who was the son of Jarman Ashton and Mary Davies. Jarman was the son of Charles Ashton and Mary Benbowe, Charles being the son of John Ashton I think. I can’t find any information about Edward only that he was born about 1845 and I thank he has a sister called Sarah. His marriage cerftificate says his father was called Ivan but I have reason to believe this could be wrong and he could also have been called Edward. Any information at all would be most appreciated
