Wills before 1875 were proved in Commissariot Courts.

These Testaments are for personal property only.
The AIGS Library has a complete set of Indexes for pre 1800 Commissariot Court Wills.

The Commissariot of Edinburgh was the main court and covers all of Scotland and Overseas as well as the local area and should always be checked.
