Yorkshire Probate Jurisdictions for Parishes Beginning with Ho-Hy
Here is a list of Yorkshire parishes beginning with the letters Ho through Hy and the pre-1858 courts that had probate jurisdiction over them. Note: Due to the large number of parishes beginning with H, some rows in the table below contain the names of more than one parish if the court jurisdictions are the same.

If no will is found, your ancestor may not have left one.
