We have a list of wills that pertain to the people of the parish.
We have a few that we own.. and we are very keen to have copies of any others that may be donated.
Otherwise this list will be added to the long list of items to find funding for.


Wills & Testaments
If a person wished to settle his or her affairs before death, they drew up a will, which set down their instructions as to the disposal of their possessions and named the executor whom they wished to administer the estate. The executor had to be confirmed by the court and the document drawn up by the court for this purpose is known as a testament. There are two types of testaments: the testament testamentar and testament dative.
