Help and advice for Wills - Miscellaneous Sources

If you have found a problem on this page then please report it on the following form. We will then do our best to fix it. If you are wanting advice then the best place to ask is on the area's specific email lists. All the information that we have is in the web pages, so please do not ask us to supply something that is not there. We are not able to offer a research service.

If you wish to report a problem, or contribute information, then do use the following form to tell us about it. We have a number of people each maintaining different sections of the web site, so it is important to submit information via a link on the relevant page otherwise it is likely to go to the wrong person and may not be acted upon.

The Devon Wills Project

A co-operation involving the Devon FHS, the Devon RO, GENUKI/Devon, and the Plymouth and West Devon RO

MISCELLANEOUS MINOR SOURCES

These sources are classed as minor solely because we have found only a limited number of wills, etc., in each of them. The majority of these sources are from various published journals and books. These are available in the Westcountry Studies Library (now part of Devon Archives and Local Studies) and/or large reference and genealogical libraries, or via an inter-library loan scheme. If you need help identifying a library near you that holds a particular book or set of journals you are interested in, try an online catalogue such as Library Hub Discover and WorldCat. Be warned however, that library catalogues do not always provide full details of which issues of a given journal they hold, so checking is in order. With unpublished works we indicate where these are to be found - where appropriate using the abbreviations CRO (Cornwall Record Office), DRO (Devon Record Office), DHC (Devon Heritage Centre), DCRS (the Devon & Cornwall Record Society collection at the Westcountry Studies Library, Exeter), DFHS (Devon Family History Society) FHL (LDS Family History Library), FS (FamilySearch), LMA (London Metropolitan Archives), NDA (North Devon Athenaeum), NDRO (North Devon Record Office), NWI (National Wills Index), SHC (Somerset Heritage Centre), SOG (Society of Genealogists) and WSL (Westcountry Studies Library - now part of the Devon Heritage Centre).

The main other type of "minor" source listed here are catalogues of record offices and archives that we have determined have some (limited) Devon-related holdings. (A systematic search has been attempted of the online catalogues, and/or the relevant sections of the A2A union catalogue, of all the main county record offices.)

Needless to say we cannot be sure of the completeness of our searches, so would appreciate being informed of any other sources where Devon wills, etc., have been found, and of any will transcripts or abstracts in the minor sources listed below that we have not as yet been able to access and check.
