TitleWill books
DescriptionVolumes of copy wills produced by the solicitors' firm of Taylors in the course of their business, including wills witnessed or proved by members of the firm, or copied for some other reason concerning the legal business of the client.

The wills are entered in order of business, and not by date of writing or proving the will, or in any other logical sequence. They relate to people within Derbyshire and also from outside of the county. Each volume is separately indexed by name. For a general index, see D504/86/16.

Dates given are dates of compilation of the will books. The books include wills written before these dates; in the early volumes, sometimes as far back as the 1820s.
