This essential tool for colonial Connecticut research contains abstracts and extracts of the estate papers of about three thousand individuals who died in Connecticut between 1635 and 1750. The records include wills, inventories, distributions and other probate documents from all available sources. 

During the earliest years covered by these volumes, Hartford jurisdiction covered a large part of the colony. As the number of towns and the population of the colony grew, Hartford probate district was carved up into more and smaller units. The first volume contains a section which details the division of Connecticut into probate districts.

The compiler has gathered both loose papers and recorded documents, giving proper volume and page citations for the recorded records. In the earliest volumes, the colony clerk maintained court and probate records in separate sections of the same volumes, although both sections might contain probate material, all of which is included here. The compiler also sought out and included probate documents from other collections maintained by the colony and now in the Connecticut State Archives.

The wills are transcribed verbatim, while the inventories and some of the other document types are published in abbreviated form. A full index provides access to the tens of thousands of persons named in these records.
