Northamptonshire & Huntingdonshire Wills
Alphabetical by surname, then listed chronologically.
There are over 200 will abstracts on this page. These were searched 1977-80, 1983-86 while living in England, and since at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. They were searched for members of the extended family of the Butterworth family, see Genealogy page, above. The Gr and Bl reference numbers refer to the page number in my handwritten abstract notebooks. The other references (i.e., 2-112, W 112, etc.) refer to the book and page number in the Peterborough & Rutland Will books. Wills that refer particularly to ancestral families can be found on the Butterworth Wills page. Some wills from the peculiar of Gretton are also included. I will search my database of all the Gretton Wills (Peculiar of Gretton and Duddington, 1657-1832). E-mail me with inquiries. See also page with early wills from the Great Gidding/Alconbury area parishes.

Note: The script, spelling and construction of all except the last paragraph (appointing the executors) suggest that the will was not written by a professional scribe (for example, there are variable spellings of the name “Goodliffe”). Buried three days later, William was clearly on his deathbed and it is likely that his wishes were dictated in an emergency to the nearest person who could write. The final paragraph was on a separate page in a different script and was apparently later added by a scribe or solicitor.
