Hello Jill, that is an interesting suggestion about checking the national archives at Kew for wills. I did a name search and did not get any results. I wonder if it would be worthwhile to pay someone to research for me. Do you know what sort of wills are likely to have been preserved in the national archives? A couple of ancestors were moderately prominent. So, I wonder if it would be worthwhile to ask someone at Kew to look at the wills that have not been digitized?
