Yeo Wills Index 1858 - 1935

The Principal Probate Registry started functioning on 12 January 1858. From this date a copy of every will proved is to be found at the Probate Search Room, First Avenue House, 42-49 High Holborn, London WC1V 6NP (tel: 020-7947 6000) . This is an index of the Yeo/Yea wills held there. Many I already have and will try to put these on-line as soon as possible, however to check whether I have a copy of the will you are interested in, e-mail me. (sheila@yeosociety.com
