Jurisdiction

London had a small peculiar jurisdiction granted to an important church within diocese of London which claimed immunity from the bishop’s jurisdiction. Called a Royal Peculiar, St Katherine's by The Tower [of London] claimed exemption from all jurisdictions except that of the sovereign. It lies immediately east of the City of London but is considered to be in the county of Middlesex, even with its close proximty next to the city proper.

Probate records of the Royal Peculiar Court St Katherine's by the Tower held jurisdiction over its own premises, including St Katherine's Hospital. However, most testators in this jurisdiction filed their wills with the Prerogative Court of Canterbury between 1750 to 1858.[1]

Records of these probates--includes original as well as registered wills. These records date from as early as 1698.
