Calendar of Wills in the Diocese of Derry 1612-1858 relating to Ardstraw Parish, Co. Tyrone and transcribed from Ardstraw: Historical Survey of a Parish 1600-1900 – John H. Gebbie (Strule Press, Omagh, 1968)

Between 1538-1858 the Church of Ireland was responsible for the probating of wills. Almost all originals were destroyed in the fire at the Four Courts, Dublin in 1922, however indexes have fortunately survived.
