Yeo Will Index

1545 - 1857

During the second world war there was extensive bombing on Exeter with the result many wills were lost. Prior to this thankfully, a Miss Moger transcribed some of the Yeo wills and I have copies of those extracts. I have also sent for all the Yeo wills registered in the PRO in London and the Cornwall Record Office. Sometimes wills were stored with family papers and where I have found these I have obtained copies. Over the next few months I will try and put some of these onto the web. If I have a copy of the will it is recorded as 'Yes' under the HELD column.I have highlighted the wills I have put onto the web. If you click on the name it will take you to the alphabetically listed page (e.g. R wills or J wills) . They are then listed in date order.
