High Court of Delegates
To return to the Staffordshire Probate Records.
High Court of Delegates was also a court of appeal for the provinces of Canterbury and York, including their peculiars, royal peculiars, and the Irish probate courts. This court is sometimes also referred to as the Court of Delegates (records are held at The National archives); records are on microfilm (from 1662-1837) and microfiche with an index, which are available at The Family History Library; The Genealogist has compiled an index in vols. 11 and 12 covering the years from 1651-1857)
