PREFACE. 



By Royal Letter, dated 8th February 1563-4, Mr. James Balfour, Parson 
of Flisk, Edward Henryson, Doctor of Laws, Clement Little, Advocate, 
and Robert Maitland were appointed first Commissaries of Edinburgh. 
The first volume of their Proceedings which is now extant commences 
on 15th October 1567, but from a Chronological Index, prepared several 
years ago by the Rev. Hew Scott, a few entries for the years 15 14 and 
1532 have been obtained, and from the Minute-Book a fragment of the 
contents of an earlier volume, commencing 3d May 1564 and ending 
17th September 1565, have been got. The dates appended to these 
names have been printed in italics. The speUing also, for the sake of 
convenience in reference, has in many instances been modernised, the 
older form being given in brackets. 

The Editor has to acknowledge much assistance from Mr. J. Maitland 
Thomson, Advocate, Curator of the Historical Department of H.M. 
General Register House.

INTRODUCTION. 

The Bishopric of Bristol was one of the six Sees founded about the 
year 1542 (the others being Chester, Gloucester, Oxford, Peterborough 
and Westminster) by Letters patent, authorised by Act of Parliament, 
31 Henry VIII. c. 9, a.d. 1539-40. Until this date it had formed part, 
as did also Gloucester, of the Diocese of Worcester. From 156X for a 
period of twenty-eight years it was held in commendam by the Bishops 
of Gloucester. From 1589 to 1836 the See was again a separate one; 
in the latter year, however, it was united with that of Gloucester, and 
remained so until this present year, 1897, when it has again a Bishop 
of its own. 

The jurisdiction of the Consistory Court of the Bishop of Bristol at 
the formation of the See in 1542 was exercised over the City and 
Deanery of Bristol, and also over the whole of the County of Dorset, 
in which county there was also a court of the Archdeacon. 

The Wills and Administrations in the Consistory and Archdeacon's 
Courts which relate to Dorset, are, and always have been, preserved at 
Blandford in that county, and the Calendars of those courts are now 
appearing in " The Index Library ". 

The present volume is a Calendar of such testamentary documents 
of the Consistory Court, relating to the City and ancient Deanery of 
Bristol, as are now preserved in the Probate Registry of that city. 

The jurisdiction of the court was exercised over the following 
parishes, viz : —

were in the Archdeaconry of Bath in the Diocese of Bath and Wells,

As before stated, previous to 1542 the City of Bristol and the whole 
County of Gloucester were contained in the Diocese of Worcester, so 
that Wills and Administrations of people dying therein before 1542 
ought to be found at the Probate Registry at Worcester, while those 
dying in the parishes of Abbot's Leigh, St. Mary Redcliff, including 
St. Thomas and Temple before 1542 ought similarly to be found at the 
Court of Probate at Wells. 

The jurisdiction of the present Probate Registry includes the whole 
of the City and County of the City of Bristol, the City of Bath, also 
twenty-seven places in Gloucestershire and those places in Somerset-

shire which are comprised within the Bristol and Bath County Court 
District. 

The earhest Wills now extant at the Probate Court of Bristol appear 
to have been proved in 1572, but how it is that earlier ones (that is to 
say, between 154.2 and 1572) do not exist at this court has never, it is 
believed, been satisfactorily explained, though by some it is alleged that 
the riots of 183 1 are responsible for the loss. 

It may partly have occurred through the vacancy in the succession 
of Bishops between 1558 and 1562, and also through the See being, as 
already stated, held in commendam by the Bishops of Gloucester, though 
there are no Wills (or, at the most, four or five) at Gloucester relating 
to this Diocese between 1542 and 1572. 

There are some transcripts of Bristol Wills in Vol. I. of the " Great 
Orphan Books " which covers the period 1379 to 1612, so that reference 
to the Calendar of this book is desirable. 

The Administrations preserved at the Court of Probate at Bristol 
commence only at the year 1770, but it is more than probable that ^he 
earlier ones are amongst a mass of uncalendared documents in the 
Consistor}' Court in the Cathedral, which, it is hoped, will soon be 
placed in proper order, and a Calendar made which may perhaps be 
eventually printed as a supplement to the present volume. 

It will be observed that in the Calendar now printed there are no 
names of places or parishes given. It certainly would have been more 
satisfactory to have had them stated, but as it would have entailed the 
opening of every document, for the official manuscript Calendar does 
not state the residence, it was thought better not to delay publication 
on this account. It must be remembered that the Consistory Court has 
always had a limited area of jurisdiction, and the great bulk of Wills 
and Administrations will therefore be of Bristol people only. 

The Wills are all original ones, since the system of registering them 
was not in vogue at this court previous to 23rd October, 1767.* 

There are no peculiar courts. 

The Wills are endorsed and tied up in bundles of years, and, generally 
speaking, are in a state of good preservation and easily accessible by the 
clerk in attendance. 

The requisite permission to print this Calendar was given by Sir 
Francis Jeune, President of the Probate Division, to whom the thanks 
of the Editor and subscribers are due, as well as to Mr. William Hurle 
Clarke, the District Registrar, who has on several occasions rendered 
assistance during the process of transcription and printing. 

* There is one book containing copies of about fifty Wills of various dates between 
1677 and 1723, the originals of all of which, except five, are in their respective bundles.

INTRODUCTION 

TO 

THE GREAT ORPHAN BOOKS. 

The following Calendar forms a complete index to the contents of three 
ponderous volumes, now preserved in the Council House at Bristol, 
known as " The Great Orphan Book and Two Books of Wills ". 

In 1886 the late Rev, S. P. Wadley, a well-known Gloucestershire 
antiquary, made very full abstracts of the Wills (some 449 in number) 
contained in the first of these volumes, which appeared in book form 
under the auspices of the Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological 
Society. In the Preface thereto Mr. Wadley explains that these Wills 
were chiefly those of persons whose children were minors at the time of 
the testators' death, and that the city authorities acted in loco parentis 
till their coming of age. 

The dates comprised in each of the three volum
