DEATH DUTY REG­IS­TERS 1796-1903

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - DEATH RECORDS -

Th­ese pro­vide a short­cut to lo­cat­ing a will and can record what an an­ces­tor’s es­tate was worth. You will usu­ally find de­tails of le­ga­tees and oc­cu­pa­tion. From 1857 there should be an en­try for any es­tate val­ued at over £20. Duty was not levied where an es­tate passed be­tween spouses and up to 1805 be­tween chil­dren, par­ents or grand­par­ents of the de­ceased. The in­dex can be searched on Find­my­past or at The Na­tional Ar­chives in Kew and records up to 1811 can be down­loaded from its web­site at na­tion­alarchives. gov.uk/records/death-duty- reg­is­ters.htm.
