The courts listed for each place are those that had jurisdiction over probating wills prior to 1858. Follow these steps.

1. In the first column, find the place where your ancestor lived.
2. In the second column, click on the court name to learn where to find the records and indexes.
3. If the record isn't found in the primary court, search the records for the secondary courts in the order listed.
4. If the record still isn't found, search the records of the Prerogative Court of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

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