Jersey Wills Database

Nearly twenty years ago I extracted the details of my relevant wills from Jersey Cour Royale Wills and Testaments 1660-1829. In doing so, I also gleaned a brief index of the other names (where I could read them) in the records for the period. I intended to complete this through to 1900 but this has not yet happened.

My index (incomplete) has been extracted from the first two films of probated wills recorded by the Ecclesiastical Court of Jersey Wills and Testaments 1660-1696 [LDS Film #431261] & 1714-1829 [LDS Film #431262]. The full set (1660-1965) was filmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah in 1965 and comprises 45 microfilm reels ; 35 mm. - and now digitally available on "FamilySearch"


* I have included in the notes, names of the spouse, children, relative, or other legatee for each entry. Do remember that these old records are written in French and the writing is often very difficult to decipher.

* I have used abbreviations but there is a key linked here

* E and OE

* Given time, I am in the process of extracting the next two films for the period 1812-1861 and will add them to this index.
