Index of Wills 1801 - 1954

[563 Records]

Note: Prefix BPC = Index to Dorset Wills and Administrations in the Probate Registry at Blandford, Dorset: -- Prefix DHC Copy held at the Dorset History Center Dorchester most of these are now (Oct 2012) available to members of ancestry.com -- Prefix P = Wiltshire & Swindon Archives and are increasingly availabe on line follow link-- Prefix PCC= Prerogative Court of Canterbury and Prefix PROB = Wills available on line at the National Archives -- Prefix SPC = Calendar of Dorset Wills and Administrations in the Salisbury Probate Court: .

Note: I have tried to scan the National Probate Calendar (now 2011 available on Ancestry.com) which covers post 1858 wills for the whole country, but you cannot search it by Parish making the finding of wills a very long arduous task. Despite having looked for over 1,000 known adult burials in the index I am sure there are many hundreds there that I missed either because we don't have the burials for that year or because the name has been spelt differently in the index. Please therefore check the calendar yourself for the burial that you are interested in and if you find a registration let me know so that I can add it to this listing.

Note: The dates given are likely to be the date of probate or when administration was issued rather than date of death. As such deaths are likely to be in that year or the year before, but can be many years earlier. I have also carried out a quick check against surviving Parish Burial Registers for a couple of years before the year given below and commented accordingly. Many of these Wills & Administrations have been indexed separately by Dorset and Wiltshire Record Offices so they will show the SPC as well as P reference numbers. These indexes are not identical. Wiltshire for example tends to include the persons trade.

Note: Some Wills are listed here for years where no parish register has survived and may be an indicator that they died recently in the Parish. The Wills themselves or comments made on the bottom or reverse of the will may reveal more detail about actual date and place of death and of course hopefully family relationships. Where wills are available on line I have tried to scan them and list beneficiaries and other important facts mentioned in the wills. This is not possible where the wills are at the National or Wiltshire Archives as they have to be purchased individually. The fact that someone was from Dorchester does not necessarily mean that they died there & may account for there being no entry in Dorchester's Parish Registers.

NOTE: If you have a copy of any of these wills (which are often difficult to read) I am willing to transcribe it properly for you in exchange for permission to display the transcription on this site. Please make contact by email at-- Mikeatstrayleaves[insert the @ symbol here]yahoo.com -- please state "OPC Dorchester/Fordington" in the subject line.

The marriage register for Holy Trinity Church Dorchester shows that he married there twice: 1st by licence to Mary BOWDITCH on 30th September 1772. Mary was the daughter of John BOWDITCH Gentleman of Dorchester who was buried at St Peters 10th Feb 1792. Mary left his estate unadministered and Abel was granted Letters of Administration for John Bowditch's estate after his wifes death.

    They had 5 children all baptised in The Presbyterian Chapel which catered for protestant dissenters, situated in Pease Lane, Dorchester.

There is an article in The Salisbury & Winchester Journal dated 23 Nov 1812 about his 2nd wife:- "TO be SOLD by AUCTION, by Mr. BAKER, at the Antelope Inn, in Dorchester, on Monday the 30th day of November, 1812, precisely at four o'clock in the afternoon, subject to such conditions as shall be then and there produced. - The Fee-Simple and Inheritance of all that MESSUAGE, Burgage, or Tenement, situate in the High West-street, in Dorchester; - consisting of two good parlours, a drawing-room, dressing-room, four good bed chambers, two garrets, kitchen, brew house, cellar, and a large room over the kitchen, which may be used as a laundry; together with a walled garden behind the same, in the occupation of Mr. Thomas Gould Read, subject to a lease of 99 years, now determinable on the death of William Channing, aged 72 years, and Ann the wife of the Rev.
