Wills and Inventories


Edited by Beverly Adams

Hertfordshire Record Society

Published 1997 (ISBN 0 9523779 2 6)

Seventy-six inventories, forty-four wills and details of relevant administration bonds form the parishes of Hertford St Andrew and All Saints between 1660 and 1725 are transcribed in this volume. Using the information contained in these probate records, the Introduction considers the extent to which changes in consumer behaviour filtered down the social hierarchy in the post-Restoration period and it also examines the wills to uncover the contemporary social and religious context.
