Bosbury Probate Material - an Introduction
There are surviving probate documents for 210 Bosbury people who people who died up to and including 1700. These documents are kept at the Herefordshire Record Office and the National Archives at Kew. All the material pre-1700 is being transcribed by VCH volunteers. Some post-1700 wills of significant people, including clergymen, will also be transcribed.
These transcripts have modernised spellings of the body of the text and of place names, where identification is certain. Names have been standardised, but the original spellings of surnnames is given as a variant, e.g. Woddyng is given its modern form Wooding.

1501-1540 probate material
1621-1640 probate material
1641-1660 probate material
1661-1680 probate material
