Belper Historical Society has produced an index detailing the wills held in the society archive.
In this area we are fortunate in such details being available from the following sites:
Staffordshire Record Office for wills proved at Lichfield –
The National Archives –
and also Duffield Manor Court Rolls which are held on microfilm at Derbyshire Record Office –
A few draft, original or copy wills have come to Belper Historical Society through family or solicitor documents, and one was noticed in the Duffield Parish Register.
This project is a work in progress and will be updated from time to time. You can access our catalogue of transcribed wills by clicking here.
