Beschreibung

Researching local history can be absorbing and rewarding but often key documents such as Manorial and Estate papers, probate inventories and parish registers are full of archaic or Latin words, terms and phrases which need translation. For students of local history and those researching their family histories therefore, this book is an essential tool. It contains a glossary of unfamiliar words and terms found in old documents such as Manorial and Estate papers, probate inventories and parish registers, plus a list of obsolete weights and measures, Latin words and phrases, saint's days, festivals and feast days, English currency dating back to the Roman period, a decimal currency converter, regnal years of English monarchs from 1066-1952 and a list of comparative costs of living and values of the pound since 1300.
