Notes

Microfilm of original records at Somerset House, Strand, London.

The register giving film numbers of the calendar of the grants of probate is located at the British Register table, call no. 942 S2cp 1989.

Wills are arranged from January to December of each year by the first letter of the surname. Within each year or film, wills are arranged according to court and month. Courts fall alphabetically within each month. Surnames are not listed alphabetically, however, within each court. Example: The last name you are seeking is Rumble, and you know that the will was probated in 1859 (must know the year of the probate). Locate, below, the letter R succeeded by the year 1859. If "R" takes up 2 or more lines, locate the line in which the month of the will (in this case May) falls. This probate should be located on film no. 1278987. When looking at the film, locate the month, then the court (alphabetically listed within each month). All surnames which begin with the letter R are listed for the specific court in consecutive order (not alphabetical).
