It's unlikely, although not impossible, that the Wills would be on the National Archives site. I would contact Nottingham Archives - they should hopefully have copies.

Thank you Jan, I will try to find them on that site.

Before 1858 I think you have yo look on National Archives site to see if there is a will.. Wills can be downloaded for a very modest fee:

I am trying to find details of 2 wills.

1. Thomas Ince stone mason born 1778 died 1809 Mansfield Nottingham.
2. George Ince stone mason born 1882 died 1812 Mansfield Nottingham.
Both were unmarried.
They left everything to the Niece Mary Betts.
Can anyone help me please.
