A friend has just sent me this link - and the catalogue contains wills proved in Salisbury, so covers some of Berkshire, Dorset and Somerset as well.

If the image of a will or document is present, it is downloadable. I understand that this is an ongoing project, so it is worth making a note of those of interest for a possible future view.

I have just downloaded around 20 from the Chardstock and Wambrook areas for my families of  interset and am now going to be many days busy deciphering them!!
