The Diary of Henry Prescott, LL.B., Deputy Registrar of Chester Diocese (3 vols.)

£39.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The Record Society of Lancashire and Cheshire, 1987, dust jackets
Very good condition, although some fading to spines of dust jackets of volumes 2 & 3.

Henry Prescott was deputy registrar in the diocese of Cheshire from 1686 to 1719. His diary provides important information on the daily business of the registry and the workings of the Consistory Court. Whether in the city of Chester or on his frequent visitations throughout the diocese, Prescott offers vivid insights into the major religious and political issues of the day and the social and economic history of early eighteenth-century Lancashire and Cheshire. He records, often with humour and sensitivity, the personal lives and characters of his family and their contemporaries: their food and drink, their pleasures, their troubles and their tragedies. These three volumes contain the whole of his surviving diary, with extensive indexes and appendices. Edited by John Addy, John Harrop and Peter McNiven.
