The following is a transcription of the Craven County Record of Wills Devisor/Devisee Index for the letter W. The devisor is the deceased person who left a will, and the devisees are those to whom the deceased person has bequeathed items in his or her estate.
 

IMPORTANT! MANY NAMES THAT SHOULD BE IN THESE CRAVEN COUNTY DEVISOR/DEVISEE INDICES ARE NOT HERE! I have not left them out in my transcription of the Devisor/Devisee Index, but it appears they were left out when the indices were originally made. If you think your ancestor should or could appear as a devisee in one of these Craven County wills, but their name does not appear in the Devisor/Devisee Index, request a copy of the actual will and double-check for yourself. It’s entirely possible that your ancestor’s name was one of many that were left out of these indices. I know many of my ancestors are named in wills, but are not mentioned in the Devisor/Devisee Index. Two examples are the devisees of Tolbert WILLIAMS and the devisees of Jacob JOHNSON.
