Braund Wills

 

Before 1858, when a new probate system was introduced, most of the wills of Braunds living in Devon were proved one of the local ecclesiastical courts. These wills were destroyed during World War 2, so there are very few surviving early Braund wills. You will find some listed on the Devon Wills Project, which aims to include all those that once existed, together with details of any surviving originals, transcripts or copies. A look at the many Braund entries on this list makes us aware of just how much history has been lost. 

 

Copies of the Braund wills listed below are held by the society. With the exception of those marked *, the originals of all the wills on the list are held by the Principal Probate Registry. Copies can be ordered from the Probate Service. The soldier’s wills are available on the same site but have to be searched for in a different way. For those with a * we are able to provide details and advise readers how they can get copies of their own. We would love to have copies of Braund wills that are not on this list, to add to our collection. 

 

The surname given is the surname under which the will was made. The maiden names of married women are included where known. Some of the years of birth, particularly those prior to 1837, are estimates.
