Compiler's Notes

These will abstracts are from volume 26 of the registered wills for the Commissary Court of London. They can be found on LDS film # 0094108. The volume commences at the end of the year 1629 and continues into 1634. If a document of particular interest is found, it is recommended that one refer back to the said volume, especially as I have not included the date of writing or the date of probate for these wills.

I have modernized and standardized most of the place names and given names, but I have left the surnames in their original forms.

The abbreviations should not cause too much difficulty. Agn = Agnes, chldr = children, Jn = John, overs = overseers, yeo = yeoman, etc. The abbreviation ctz = citizen of London.

The underlining denotes those who were related to the testator but had a different surname.

I have included a locality index which lists the various places outside of Middlesex found within these wills. Nearly every county is represented, as well as some places in Wales, Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands. Please refer to the index for further details.

It should also be noted that the parishes of Epping, Leyton, Loughton, Nazeing, Waltham Holy Cross, Walthamstow and Woodford in the county of Essex were all under the jurisdiction of this court.

Any comments or errors can be addressed to myself, Mr Leslie Mahler at lmahler[at]worldnet.att[dot]net

It is hoped that these abstracts will be of interest and use to many.
