NAMES EXTRACTED FROM SOME 18th CENTURY WILLS/ADMONS/INVENTORIES OF PEOPLE WHO DIED IN LEICESTERSHIRE

I would be delighted to add to this list but at the moment I would like to restrict it to LEICESTERSHIRE up to and including the19th Century. If anyone would like to send in names please email me rjoram@bigpond.net.au and I will update the list as often as possible. If the same format could be followed that would be most helpful. Any names that are not very clear can be followed by a ??.

GUY ETCHELLS has a selection of wills at:

& other useful information at:

Some of the wills are very hard to read so some imagination might be necessary with the names with question marks after them. All places are in Leicestershire, unless stated to be otherwise.

There is no index so please use FIND or scroll.
