Some Westmorland Wills 1686 - 1738
Some Westmorland Wills 1686 - 1738. Edited by John Somervell. Published in 1928. This book contains a unique collection of old wills which were in the possession of the Society of Friends at Kendal. The
wills, although all of Quakers, are of general interest, and along with the inventories accompanying them, give a clear picture of rural life in the North of England in the late 17th and early 18th century. Compete with nine photographs, a glossary of old or local terms, and indexes of farms and names of persons.
