Do you seriously wish someone to answer your query, or just make speculative suggestions?
How about giving names of the Testator, Properties, References to NLW or NA Archives etc.
Given information, I am quite happy to look at the information, and give my
interpretation, which may be right or wrong.
What I and other list members, are not prepared to do, is speculate, or search without
If you want answers, then I suggest you provide as much as you know.

Subject: [Dyfed] Probate puzzle
I wonder if there is someone who could enlighten me on the details of a
Will. It was written, signed and witnessed on the 16th November 1846. The
testator died on the 23rd November 1846. The property was situated in
Llanrhystud, Ceredigion. The information was extracted from the Registry
of the Consistorial Archidiaconal Court of Wales. Probate was granted in
London before a judge based on an oath by one of the Executors on the 9th
My question is why should Probate be granted in London before a judge?
And, accepting this to be the case, any ideas as to what court might it
have been and where was it situated?
Thanks in anticipation
