Additional Notes: This collection of Wills were transcribed (by the submitter) from LDS film of Pedigrees and Genealogical notes of the Allport's of Cannock and elsewhere in England (compiled by William Allport Leighton), FHL#0477789.

Whilst not directly connected with Derbyshire research, providing this information online may nevertheless prove useful to someone. It is believed that the Allport families were from Derbyshire originally, before one or more of them moved down to Cannock Forest as wardens, in the 14th century. And it seems likely they took their surname from 'Alport' near Youlgreave.

Appropriately, the LDS film provides the following supportive detail: (p.212)

  1. The above details were correct at the time they were provided to me (originally 11 Mar 2006); however the web is a volatile beast, so please bear in mind the information may no longer be current.

  2. Contact details are provided for acknowledging contributions, and for establishing mutual interest only - please do NOT expect us to provide more general help with your research. In addition, please be aware that the submitter may NOT be researching the families mentioned in the Will, as he or she may have collected it for another purpose entirely - for example, Local History or Population research.

  3. As a precaution against spam-bot "harvesting", all email addresses are provided using snippets of Javascript code. Nevertheless they may still attract unsolicited email, or "spam", so many submitters prefer NOT to make their email address available directly.
