Brecht One-Name Study

All England & Wales Probate Calendar
(Index of Wills & Administrations) 1858-1995

I have listed the names of Brecht, Le Brecht & Brett transcribed by Ancestry, in the same order.

Then I have added some of the information obtained from the Probate registers themselves from the links provided by Ancestry.

At the end of the list, I have added some notes of my own.

The 16 Brecht/Brett names and the 5 Le Brecht names in alphabetical order are as follow:
