These names are of individuals who are known to be from Devon - there may well be others who also came from Devon, but this cannot be determined from the indexes. Those entries in the listings below that are marked "(trans)" are ones for which Elizabeth Howard has transcriptions of the actual probate records. In other cases, further information is available only from the actual records.
Ontario Archives provides a research guide that describes how to find a will that was filed in an Ontario court, which are available on microfilm at the Archives.
