MISC. CORNISH WILL AND ADMINISTRATION ABSTRACTS (part 8)
1665 through 1799
I have abstracted all of the following wills myself with the exception of
several of the Glasson wills which
were provided by Ray Glasson. 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.
