Buckland Newton & Plush

WILLS OF BUCKLAND NEWTON & PLUSH RESIDENTS

Transcribed and donated to the Dorset OPC Project by Jon Baker

Until 1858, all wills had to be proved (formally approved) by the church or other authorised court. The Prerogative Court of Canterbury (PCC), the most important of these courts, dealt with the relatively wealthy individuals living mainly in the south of England and most of Wales (what was originally the ecclesiastical province of Canterbury) who owned property in more than one parish. Wills of less wealthy individuals may have been proved in a number of other ecclesiastical courts, including the Archdeaconry Court of Dorset or the courts of royal peculiars. From 1858 all wills were indexed centrally and this index is widely available at Record Offices, Probate Registries and the LDS.

The first table below lists the wills proved in the PCC. These wills can be downloaded from the Documents online service of the National Archives for a small fee: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/

Note: Researchers are advised to be aware that where the place name refers simply to "Buckland" there is the possibility that this could refer to Buckland Ripers
