* Inheritance Dispute Index (1574-1714): over 26,000 records
This database, compiled by *Peter Coldham, makes available for the first
time, and exclusively on British Origins, a comprehensive index to over
26,000 lawsuits instituted in the Chancery Court of England relating to
inheritance of money or real estate.
The Index to Inheritance Disputes identifies whose estate the case is
concerned with, where that person lived, the parties to the dispute, the
date the case started, and The National Archives (TNA) reference(s) to the
original documents. The index covers the wills, bequests, grants of
administration, descent of property, identity claims and other testamentary
disputes tried in the Chancery Court in London.
These cases typically involved several members of the same family so are of
particular value to family historians.
