Wills, administrations and indexes from various sources.

I am not quite sure how to put these records and indexes on the page. After much thought I have decided to put them in book order as I found them. It may make more sense than sorting them in date or name order at this time and at least this way, they are as I found them. It is up to the reader to conduct their own search, as one would if they consulted the registers and indexes one by one, as I have. The only drawback is the duplication between registers and indexes may make cross referencing a little confusing. I have found that the duplicates across registers always share a common reference so this should not be a problem. As the page grows I will try to put the information in an order that may make more sense. Also please bear in mind that this page is in development and may contain some errors.
