The Devon (UK) Wills Project

The DevonWills Project aims to provide a consolidated index of Devon wills,

administrations, and inventories. Its goal is to compensate, as far as possible, for the disastrous loss of Devon wills in World War II. The index will include original documents, probate copies, transcripts, and abstracts. Nearly 25,000 of these are already indexed at the project’s website, which is well worth a search if your one-name study has a presence in Devon.

The project is currently seeking private websites that include abstracts or transcripts of Devon wills. Does your study website have any of these? If so, please send the URL to coordinator
