Elizabethan Inventories and Wills of the Exeter Orphans' Court, Volume 2

£17.99

Product description

Volume two only of two volumes presenting the Elizabethan wills and inventories collected by the Exeter Orphans' Court between 1560 and c.1602. The court administered the estates of all 'orphans' (the children of wealthy freemen whose fathers were deceased) within the city. They form the most important series of documents relating to the houses, material culture and social history of people living in Exeter during the latter half of the sixteenth century, including the number of rooms in their homes, their furniture, clothes and kitchen equipment, and the pattern of their debts. They are thus an invaluable resource for anyone interested in everyday life and the household in Elizabethan England.

Condition: Covers shelfworn, general scuffing; pages clean and clear and binding tight.
