Irish Wills

Calendar of Wills and Administrations 1858-1922
Since 1858, grants of probate and administration have been made in the Principal and District Registries of the Probate Court (before 1877) or the High Court (after 1877). They are indexed in the Calendars of Wills and Administrations. Up to 1917, the Calendars cover the whole of Ireland, but since 1918 they cover only the 26 counties in the Republic.

Dublin Will and Grant Books
Deputy Keeper Of Ireland, Index To The Act or Grant Books, and To Original Wills, Of The Diocese Of Dublin 1272-1858 (26th, 30th, and 31st Report)

Prerogative and Diocesan Copies of Wills and Indexes 1596-1858
This dataset contains records from before 1858 when wills were proved by the appropriate courts of the Church of Ireland (the Prerogative Court and the Diocesan or Consistorial Courts). While most of the originals were destroyed by the 1922 fire some survive for the Prerogative Court (1664-1684, 1706-1708, 1726-1728, 1728-1729, 1777, 1813 and 1834) and some Diocesan Courts – Connor (1818-1820 and 1853-1858) and Down (1850-1858). The will books for Armagh, Belfast and Londonderry are in the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland.

Soldiers’ Wills 1914-1918
Over 9,000 wills held by The National Archive of Ireland, covering enlisted and non-commissioned soldiers who fought in the British Army in the World War I and a very small number from the South African war of 1899-1902.

Will Registers 1858-1900
Remnants of the wills distroyed in 1922.

Wills Index, 1484 – 1858
An index to those records where an original document still exists with the NAI (e.g. an original will, administration or grant of probate, a certified copy, a transcript, or even abstracts and extracts). Documents which are not technically wills were often included in the NAI testamentary card catalogues because it was genealogically useful and around 10% of this dataset is made up of these types.
