Probate Records and the Local Community

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The wills and inventories of early modern England form one of the major sources for the study of many aspects of economic and social history between the 16th and mid-18th century. Numerous editions of probate records have been published and the material has been widely used in many monographs and articles.

Students of historical demography, vernacular architecture, costume, furniture, farming, industry and many other topics have exploited their seemingly limitless potential to illuminate obscure corners of early modern history, and for local historians they are a staple source. There is, however, no general study of the documents and the pitfalls they present to the unwary user.

This volume, based on the proceedings of a conference organised by the editor at the University of Wales centre at Gregynog, attempts top fill this gap by bringing together papers on probate material from different parts of the country and suggesting how this ubiquitous source may best be used.

This book is an ex-library book but is in very good condition. There are slight signs of shelf wear to the covers. Internally, the pages are clean and the binding is tight.
