    The Will Keeper of Sussex Family History Group, Rosie, has uploaded 650 more transcribed Wills to their website. This is due in no small part to our very own @burt who has been on the case. Thanks burt, you are a star.

    There is a really handy index by name and also by place and instructions on how to ask for a copy of any Will.

    I used to belong to the group but haven't done any Sussex research for a long time. Unfortunately I don't think many of my Sussex people would have left a will.:(

    There is also a sort of names list, i.e. anyone mentioned it might be worth checking that in case a beneficiary or witness appears.

    Well, @Blackmogs, as you know the Index can be useful!
    Just at the moment it is proving very fruitful indeed!
    In between your Ancestor Nicholas Sowter's Will which
    I sent you and that of Anthony Sowter his eldest sonne,
    which will be winging its way to you later (his youngest
    son was called Anthony too!), there was one John Hudson
    of Bramshott. This one is MY direct Ancestor, I had got
    no further back than his daughter! I'm well happy!
    So it can be rewarding as well!:D:D
