It's probable that wills of expatriates, particularly those of
significant wealth, would be proved in the Prerogative Court of
Canterbury. Some background reading might be advantageous here; a useful
set of reprints are now available of West Indian history. These
histories contain many names of the times. The Cass Library of West
Indian Studies has at least 28 titles, all published by Frank Cass & Co.
