Extracted probate record

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Lindsey Report 1 Apr 2013 14:33

I am trying to find the will for an extracted probate record that I found on Ancestry. It's for a death in 1698 for a Richard May and was proven in Groby, Leicestershire but there are no reference numbers or anything. I have looked on the National Archives site and found nothing on there.

Thanks very much

Jonesey has a very good thread about Wills

Probably mentioned in the stickied thread at the top of this board

Leicestershire Record Office might have it, or know where it is......assuming the Will itself has survived
