Sussex FHG Wills Depository

The Wills Depository includes transcripts of over 8,500 wills, over 750 Admons and over 450 abstracts of Sussex people, or with Sussex references, up until 1930. We are also now collecting inventories.

Check the lists below to find wills relevant to your family, or from the parishes you are interested in. Contact me and I will send you the transcripts you would like to see. Please quote your membership number. Last year I supplied over 560 transcripts to members. Copies of transcripts received are also held in the SFHG library at the Keep.

All names from wills (testators, beneficiaries, executors and witnesses) are now to be found in a separate Wills Index. To check these please see Names from Wills.

If you have transcribed any wills, Admons or inventories in the course of your family history we would be pleased to add them to the Depository.
To forward your transcripts, either as a Word document or typed, please contact me:
