Lost Brooking Wills

In the early years of the twentieth century Albert Trimble Brooking (1856-1938) of Exeter, and Arthur Henry Brooking (1884-1963) of Stamford Hill, London, collaborated on research into the Brooking family. In the 1920s and 1930s Arthur made abstracts and list entries from many of the Brooking wills held at the Bishop’s Registry at Exeter.

These papers were rediscovered in the 1980s and are now held by The Brooking Society.

The abstracts and list entries are listed on the Devon Wills Project pages on and on FindMyPast at .

For the list entries there is no further information available, but email transcripts of the abstracts may be had by contacting us.
