This small volume of 67 pages catalogues, in meticulous detail, a collection of little known wills and administrations which were housed in the Probate Registry at Canterbury. The American genealogist, Lothrop Withington (1856-1915), started the project, but was killed with the sinking of the Lusitania. Subsequently, the project was completed by Henry Plomer and staff at the Probate registry. The volume contains around 3,300 wills and admons, and many associated documents. It covers a great deal of the population of east Kent during this turbulent period of English history.
