Effective January 1, 2011, the Montville Probate Court merged with East Lyme, Old Lyme and Salem.

Probate records for closed matters from 1852-2004 are located in the Montville Town Clerk’s office.

Probate records for closed matters from 2004-2010 are located at the new District 32 Probate Court.

On behalf of Linda, Kate and myself, thank you for the privilege of serving as your probate court for the past eight years. We will sadly miss the opportunity to help the residents of Montville in their probate needs.
