Ref: IE5005
ISBN: 1-84630-139-4

This CD contains three volumes of the Chetham Society dedicated to Lancashire & Cheshire wills and inventories 1477-1807. The first (Volume 3 new series) includes fulsome transcriptions of 52 wills and inventories proved at Chester in the sixteenth century. This was originally published as volume 33 of the old series by the Society but this addition includes the abstracts of 141 wills and inventories proved at Chester between 1545 and 1650, which can be found nowhere else.

The second volume (Volume 28 new series) was originally published in 1894 includes transcripts of wills and inventories proved at Chester between 1572 and 1696, as well as 108 Lancashire and Cheshire wills proved at either Richmond or York between 1542 and 1650.

The third volume (Volume 37 new series) is a continuation of the series and contains the fulsome abstracts with genealogical notes of some 60 wills and their inventories, mainly from individuals from the more elevated ranks of society, although the volume includes the wills of yeomen, schoolmasters and clergymen from the middle ranks of society.

It is an essential resource for the study of society and family history in these two counties in the 16th and 17th centuries.

Re-published here in fully-searchable digital format is volume XXIII of the Chetham Society. Established for the promotion, collection and publication of the 'remains, historical and literary connected with the Palatine counties of Lancaster and Chester', this volume was original published in 1853-4.

Volume XXXIII of the Chetham Society's publications is drawn from the Archives of the Ecclesiastical Court, Chester, and the contents transcribed by the incumbent of Farndon, the Rev. John Piccope, M.A. These wills and inventories, more than fifty in total, formed part of a collection of eminent Lancashire and Cheshire families held at the Registry of the Chester Ecclesiastical Court, which had attracted the paricular attention of the Chanceller of the Diocese, the Rev. Henry Raikes, M.A. With Raikes' permission, the wills and inventories contained in this volume were transcribed.

The majority of the wills and inventories contained in this volume treat on some of the most eminent families of Lancashire and Cheshire in the first half of the 16th century. The wills and inventories transcribed by Piccope are presented almost in their original form, minus a few contractions and repitions and include all legacies and useful biographical noted on the testators throughout.

Volume XXIII of the publications of the Chetham Society should appeal to anyone with an interest in thehistory of the counties in question.
