In the following files you will find the index for the probate
papers for the County of York, in Province of New Brunswick. Due to the
size of these listings, they are being broken down into alpha files. Most
files will contain only surnames beginning with one letters, while a few
of the shorter lists will be in groups of two letters. There are no surnames
beginning with X or Z.
These probate records may contain a will, letter of administration and/or
details of the estate, heirs, etc. All files DO NOT contain all items.
Copies can be had from the Provincial
Archive of New Brunswick - see their site for contact information details.
Extracts of Probate records have been published, for the whole of New
Brunswick, up to the year 1835, by R. Wallace Hale, under the title of
New Brunswick Probate Records 1785 - 1835" (I
do not have an address of where this can be purchased.)
There are also additional files at the Provincial Archives, which deal
with intestate estates, etc. I believe an index to these is on their site,
Papers., in the Finding Aid for the Correspondence of the Provincial
Secretary section. (You will need the Adobe
Reader, which is a free downloadable program.)
Since most browsers retain a copy of files in memory, when you have
used the file, if you use your back button to return to this page it will
speed things up.
