1602 through 1853
I have abstracted all of the following wills with these exceptions--the will of Symon Coocke is taken from Charles Henderson's Cornish Manuscripts, and the Glasson wills are courtesy of Ray Glasson from the Glasson Archive. 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.
