UK's National Archives: Wills

UK's National Archives is online and allows you to search for Wills - an important source for Genealogy.

The introduction of wills on the site gives information on what info can be gleamed from the Wills.

I searched for Roche in the period 1700 to 1800 and found more than 40 of them.

I searched for Mangalore (without the ROCHE) and found six of them:

1. Will of George Johnson, now belonging to the good Ship Bengal Merchant now riding in the Road of Mangalore on the Coast of East India 23 September 1689
