DEVON WILLS (Ref 066) by C. Worthy You   will   probably   be   aware   that   most   of   the   wills   belonging   to   the   West   Country   were destroyed   in   an   air   raid   on   Exeter   during   the   Second   World   War.   Whilst   copies   are   being found   genealogists   and   local   historians   have   to   rely   heavily   of   transcriptions   and   extractions made prior to this loss. Of   these   useful   works   Devonshire   Wills   by   C.   Worthy   is   one   of   the   most   important.   This massive   work   of   516   pages   is   divided   between   309   pages   of   will   and   administrations   and   206 pages of the genealogies of 31 Devonshire families. As   well   as   the   usual   index   at   the   back   of   the   book,   this   CD   version   can   also   be   searched   by using   the   search   facility   in   Adobe   Acrobat,   making   this   a   most   useful   CD   to   anyone   whose interests lie in the county of Devon . £6.00 including UK Postage       £7.50 including Overseas Postage

CALENDAR OF DEVON AND CORNWALL WILLS PROVED AT EXETER (Ref 137) edited by Edward Alexander Fry During   the   Second   World   War   the   Wills   held   at   the   Exeter   Probate   Registry   were   destroyed   by a   bomb.   Over   the   years   some   copies   have   come   to   light   that   were   held   by   solicitors   and   some that   were   in   private   hands   but   many   thousands   were   lost.   This   publication   is   the   Calendars   of Wills   and   Administrations   relating   to   Devon   and   Cornwall   that   were   proved   in   the   Principal Registry   of   the   Bishop   of   Exeter   between   1559   and   1799   and   those   of   Devon   proved   in   the Court of the Archdeaconry of Exeter between 1540 and 1799. This   book   consists   of   almost   nine   hundred   pages   listing   those   who   left   wills,   the   year   they were   proved   and   where   the   person   lived. This   means   that   if   the   person   that   you   are   interested in   left   a   will   that   was   proved   in   Exeter   you   should   be   able   to   find   at   least   a   mention   of   them.   It is   also   very   useful   in   trying   to   locate   a   lost   person,   providing   they   left   a   will   or   administration was granted for their goods.
