Court of the Deanery of the Arches of London, Croydon, and Shoreham probate records are available online at FamilySearch for free.

Before 1858, probate matters for residents of St Magnus the Martyr and St Margaret New Fish Street were handled by the Court of the Archdeaconry of London. St. Michael Crooked Lane Parish fell under the jurisdiction of the Court of the Deanery of the Arches. In practice, many St Magnus and St Margaret residents left their wills in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury from the 1700s through 1858.[22] From 1858 to the present, refer to the Principal Probate Registry.

Go to London Probate Records to find the name of the court having secondary jurisdiction. Scroll down in the article to the section Court Jurisdictions by Parish.
