Bromsgrove PCC Wills
Some of Bromsgrove’s wealthier citizens owned land and other property in more than one diocese. Their wills were therefore proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, which had a superior jurisdiction. These wills are now preserved in the National Archives at Kew. The entire collection of many thousands of wills has been scanned and is accessible on-line. Each will can be downloaded at a cost of £3.50. The list of Bromsgrove PCC wills given below was compiled using the on-line search facility.
