Prerogative Court of Canterbury (PCC) Wills 1384-1858

Until the Court of Probate Act came into effect on 12th January 1858, probate was granted by ecclesiastical courts of England and Wales.

The PCC was one of the largest of these courts covering Southern England, Wales and many individuals who died abroad. The records are copies off registered wills, which were written into volumes by the clerks at the church courts, and many earlier records are in Latin.
