Brinkworth, Wiltshire - Wills from Earliest Times - 1650

Index of People

Copyright C.R.G. Henly 1994

I (Clive Henly) have compiled this document as part of my research into the social history of Brinkworth and the surrounding area. I propose to update this collection as I transcribe more Wills for the period, and also to publish further collections for later periods.

In addition to these wills, I have also collated a large amount of information about the area and have transcribed several manorial documents, dating back to the mid-sixteenth century. I am always happy to exchange information or to help fellow researchers where possible.

This collection is in three parts:

  1. A List of Wills of Brinkworth residents up to the year 1650. This covers Wills proven at the Prerogative Court of Canterbury (PCC), Archdeaconry of Wiltshire (ADW) and the Consistory Court of Sarum (CS)

    Because of the organisation of the calendars for these courts, this was not an easy list to compile accurately. Therefore, I cannot guarantee that it is complete.

  2. Transcripts of some of the Wills listed in Section 1.

  3. Index of People mentioned in transcribed Wills (this webpage).
