Wills before 1875 were proved in Commissariot Courts.
The areas covered by Commissariot Courts pre 1800 in Scotland relate to Church jurisdiction and not county borders so more than one Court can cover a County. 

The Commissariot Court of Edinburgh had jurisdiction for the whole of Scotland and abroad and should also be checked. 
These Testaments are for personal property only.

The Library has a complete set of Indexes for pre 1800 Commissariot Court Wills.

The Commissariot of Edinburgh was the main court and covered all of Scotland and overseas as well as the local area and should always be checked. fiche T11-T23
The Commissariot of Moray covers the following parishes in Banffshire:
Aberlour, Botriphnie, Grange, Inveravon, Inverkeithny, Keith, Kirkmichael, Marnoch and Rothiemay.
