Court for Probate of Wills and Granting Administrations and Prerogative Court of Canterbury: Miscellaneous Exhibits Pre 1722
Description:

An artificial series of various exhibits, including exhibits produced in causes, articles of agreement between creditors, proxies of renunciation and of curation, revoked letters of administration, excommunications, and affidavits.

All the documents in the series predate the establishment of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury's main series of numbered exhibits in 1722. A few derive from the Court for Probate of Wills and Granting Administrations, which exercised probate jurisdiction throughout England and Wales from 1653 to 1660, but the majority postdate the restoration of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury in 1660.

Date: 1653-1721
Separated Material: For records which were extracted from or became separated from undoubted Prerogative Court of Canterbury records, and were placed in another PROB series because they were inventories, accounts, or commissions relating to inventories and accounts of the late seventeenth or early eighteenth centuries see:
