A Glossary of Household, Farming and Trade Terms from Probate Inventories

Compiled by Rosemary Milward

This booklet remains the only separately published glossary of the many technical terns found in both farming and trade inventories and provides a convenient short–cut to definitions. This third edition of the Glossary is greatly extended, containing some 1,500 terms drawn from the Chesterfield inventories down to 1700. Modestly priced, it is among the most useful handbooks available to the local historian or genealogist.
