INTRODUCTION. 




HIS volume is in continuation of four volumes 
previously printed by this Society. These are 

as follows : — Vol. II., Index to the Wills and 

Inventories at Chester, 1545 to 1620; Vol. IV., Index to 
the Wills and Inventories at Chester, 1621 to 1650; Vol. 
XV., Index to the Wills and Inventories at Chester, 1660 
to 1680; Vol. XVIII. , Index to the Wills and Inventories 
at Chester, 1681 to 1700. There is no necessity to repeat 
here the information which is contained in the several 
introductions to those four volumes, in which a full 
account of the wills now preserved at Chester will be 
found. 

It will be noticed that this volume, although containing 
all the wills now extant for a period of twenty years — 1701 
to 1720 — is not so large as the corresponding volume 
between the years 1681 and 1700. Why this is so is not 
easy to explain, especially when we consider that the 
population was increasing, and we can do no more than 
record the fact. The volume for the next twenty years, 
1 72 1 to 1740, will, I think, be found larger than this one and 
more nearly approaching that for the years 1681 to 1700. 

The following is the list of the few wills belonging to the 
period 1701 to 1720, which have been copied into Volume 
III. of the "Enrollment Books" preserved in the Bishop's 



vi Introduction. 

Registry at Chester. All these wills are still preserved at 
the Probate Court, and will be found in the accompanying 
index: —

The following points are commended to the attention of tJiose 
using this book : — 

/. In some cases inventories appear to have become detached 
from the original wills, and so have been placed in different 
bundles and indexed under different years. This list, how- 
ever, being an alphabetical one, such cases will be speedily 
detected, and it will be easy to replace tJie inventories in their 
proper places. 

2. Where the word " Inv " occurs, it signifies that the 
deceased had most probably died intestate, and that an inven- 
tory of his goods had been filed and administration granted 
to his representatives. Where tJie zvord " Admon " occurs, it 
shows that an administration bond had been filed as well. 
In all other cases the wills themselves are extant, either with 
or without the accontpanyijtg ifzventoj'ies. 

J. It is to be noted that in the Probate Court of Chester 
the original wills up to i8j8 (and not official transcripts, as 
in many otJier Probate Courts) are those shozun to enquirers. 

4.. Owing to the original spelling of the wills having been 
followed in tJie MS. Index, and alloiving for possible mis- 
readings, enquirers are particularly desired to search for any 
name bearing a resemblance to that they are looking for, as 
for example leigh for Legh or lee, Newall for Nowall, 
Houghton for Haughton, &c., S'c. As far as possible this 
has been i^idicated by cross references in this list. Words 
now spelt with an i then frequently had y. 

5. This list contains all the wills, inventories, and ad- 
ministration bonds now known to be preserved at tJie Probate 
Court, Chester, between the years lyoi and iy20 inclusive. 
It is in continuatiojt of vohtmes 2, ^, 75, a7td 18 (Indices to 
the Wills and Inventories nozv preserved at Chester, 75^5 to 
1620, 1621 to 16^0, 1660 to 1680, and 1681 to 1700), and 
will be followed by others, bringi^ig the lists dozvn to iy6o, 
or possibly lySo. 

6. In an Appendix zvill be found the list of all the wills, 
proved between 1701 and 1720, in which the amoinit of per- 
sonalty was less than £^0. These zvills, ivJiicJi were proved 
in the Rural Deans' Courts, are generally called " Infra" 
wills, aiid there are none known of earlier date than 1660. 
They are kept distinct from the other wills, and when 
enquired for it is necessary to clearly describe thein as 
bei?ig '^ Infra" and not ordinary wills. 

7. This volume alone, inchiding the Appendix, is an 
Index to nearly twelve thousand five hundred documents.
