Scope and content

According to the Charter of Edward III, dated 1st April 1335, all wills relating to tenements and revenues within the Borough were to be approved (approbare) and enrolled before the Mayor and burgesses in the Guildhall. The Red Register records the appointment of 'examinations testamentorum' in 1372. The majority of the wills were proved before the Bishop's Official within the Liberty of Lynn at least until 1539. Some wills are enrolled in the Red Register (KL/C10/1).
