Researching the Cottrell family of Hill Croome and Upton on Severn, Worchestershire from late 1500s and early 1600s, no profiles exist yet for most of them. My question is, I get a hit on a will in the Worchestershire calendar with a Fry's reference number (info below) but I haven't been able to find the will or probate itself. I've tried the "Hive" library online but no luck yet, maybe I'm just not a good searcher. Any tips on how/where to find this will be greatly appreciated.
- Francis Cottrell
- Date 02 May 1629
- Place: Baughton, Hill Croome, Worcestershire
- Document Type: Will and Inventory
- Fry's reference:1629-032
- Jurisdiction:Diocese of Worcester
- Archive:The Hive, Worcester

Update, figured out how to search the hive, they do have copies of the Worcester Consistory Court wills so just need somebody who lives close to the Hive to go make a copy of it for me :)
