Dummer Probate Material 1521 to 1540
Four wills survive for this period, one written in Latin.
Wills and inventories survive for Dummer in Hampshire Record Office (HRO) and The National Archives (TNA). These are being transcribed by the Wills Group of the New Victoria County of Hampshire project based in Basingstoke and will be published in the near future. These transcriptions have been made from copies of original probate documents supplied by HRO and TNA. Words have been modernized and punctuation added to make reading easier but names have been transcribed as written. Words in italics indicate omissions in the original document which have been added to make sense of the text. Words in square brackets indicate that they have been transcribed as seen but where the meaning is unclear. Dummer is described as being in the county of Southampton, the old name for Hampshire.
Links to the transcriptions are below. The wills of Dummer rectors are published in a separate section of Explore.
A glossary is attached of unusual words and a link to the documents is below.
