Prerogative Court of Canterbury. Letters of Administration 1620-1630

by J.H. Morrison (London, 1935)

Extracted by Jean E. Harris


The following is an index of Devonians appearing in this Morrison volume. It is advisable to read Morrison's preface but this is a brief quote from his book to clarify the source of these PCC administrations:

"The original Acts and Bonds, constituting (in effect) the "Letters of Administration" issued by the Prerogative Court of Canterbury in respect of the estates of persons dying intestate within its jurisdiction, are not extant before the year 1714 in the official archives, now preserved at Somerset House. But an almost unbroken series of Administration Act Books, beginning in 1559, records the gist of these departed documents; and the contents of four of these Act Books form the basis of the present volume... The Act Books are written entirely in Latin (except for the Commonwealth period)."

Where Morrison has preserved at Somerset House, these documents will now be held at the National Archives, Kew, London.
