This information is included as I believe there is no complete set of accurate transcripts of Ledbury wills on the internet. Ledbury is the nearest market town just 5 miles from Bosbury and many families have Bosbury links. Transcriptions were done by Ledbury people - Linda Banwell, Gill Bateman, Janet Funke, Liz Keatley, Celia Kellett, Veslemøy Lunt, Val McDonald and Jerry Pearce. 19th.C wills are courtesy of Celia Kellett.

The original Ledbury wills with reference numbers noted as HAS are held at the Herefordshire Archive and Records Centre, Fir Tree Lane, Rotherwas, Hereford HR2 6LA. You can call them on 01432 260750 or email them at archives [at] herefordshire.gov.uk to check opening times and to book a visit.
