1582 through 1716
I have abstracted most of the following wills myself. I have tried to be as accurate as possible, but some of the wills are hard to read, and I may have made mistakes. If you see a will that you need for documentation of one of your lines, you should obtain a copy of the original. See my Cornish Probate Guide for help on this.
