Revision as of 13:50, 2 June 2018



Here is a list of Yorkshire parishes beginning with the letters Ha through Hi and the pre-1858 courts that had probate jurisdiction over them. Note: Due to the large number of parishes beginning with H, some rows in the table below contain the names of more than one parish if the court jurisdictions are the same.

For other parishes, click on a letter link:
