[http://books.google.com/books?id=dfkcAAAAYAAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_book_other_versions_r&cad=2_1#PPA498,M1 Here] is an online printed (scanned images) from 1516-1652. This is not a complete listing of all wills for this time period, but, it might be helpful to those searching during this time.
==== Printed and Published Indexes ====
'''Original Handwritten Indexes'''
There is an index (manuscript) from 1516 to 1857 covering most if not all wills in Staffordshire including both the Consistory Court of Lichfield and also the smaller or peculiar courts.
'''Microfilmed Indexes at the Family History Library'''
The indexes as listed in the above are also available in the collection of The Family History Library and they are on microfilm and may be circulated to each of its satellite Family History [http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library/FHC/frameset_fhc.asp [Introduction to LDS Family History Centers|Centers]] worldwide.
In addition, the Family History Library has a more comprehensive microfilmed {{FHL|338212|title-id|disp=set of Calendars}} of probate records which partially indexes the surnames (by first letter of surname only) available for the years from 1492 to 1860.
Amazingly, the Lichfield Archives has alphabetically arranged many of the diocesan wills by each letter of each surname as well (see the next section below).
