Index to Berkshire Wills 1480-1857
Berkshire Record Office announced that their index to Berkshire wills for the period 1480 to 1857 is now available online on their website.
I wish I had Berkshire ancestry but I don't.
Here is an example of what the index looks like.
You can also search this index of over 38,000 entries to see what Archdeaconry of Berkshire wills, administrations and inventories we have for the period 1480 to 1857.
The index is listed by surname, but also provides details of place name and occupation as well the document reference of the record and what microfilm/fiche (MF) copies are available at BRO.
To use the Name Search simply enter the name as surname, first name. For example: Blackmore, Dennis. You can also search by surname only or first name only.
For place names or occupations please use the Keyword Search.
If you would like to look at or order copies of any of the records listed, please Contact Berkshire Record Office.
