Toni, Cornish wills are downloadable from Family Search.

Do you want me to find one for you?

Thanks Elizabeth, no I wanted to search for wills, I don't have one in mind, I don't think. This morning was so long ago. lol

I'll search familysearch myself. I forget they have Cornwall records online.

Thanks again for the offer. You are so kind. x

Toni, a little tip to make it easier.

If you have a particular parish in mind, use Cornwall OPC.

https://www.opc-cornwall.org/Par_new/parishes.php

Click on the parish you are interested in.
Here is Probus:

https://www.opc-cornwall.org/Par_new/n_p/probus.php

Scroll down quite a long way to wills (or use Cltrl +F)

You will see a list of transcribed wills. You can click on each will given to see the transcription.

But above the wills you will see this:
A list of available Wills and Probate Documents. Copies of the original documents marked CRO can be purchased using the Kresen Kernow copying service, or may be freely accessible on films from the FamilySearch website. Copies marked NA can be purchased from the National Archive.

Click on
A list of available Wills and Probate Documents.

This will link you to the list of all wills that have been found for Probus. The ones highlighted have already been transcribed.

Thank you Eliza. I love Cornwall OPCs. I haven't done much on my Cornwall relatives in recent times and as I have a will thing at the moment I thought I'd go back to them.
