Hereford wills
« on: Monday 05 May 14 13:12 BST (UK) »
I am wondering if anyone knows of an index of Hereford wills, other than the abstracts on the Gebuki site.  I am looking for any Powells in the Shropshire parishes in the diocese of Hereford prior to 1700. Any help welcome.

Herefordshire Record Office /  Archives has a searchable index of all Herefordshire Wills - you can search by person name or  placename /area/parish  , by Executors or date of Probate . If you find the Will you were looking for , you can then buy a copy .
