Probate inventories provide an unparalleled glimpse into the lives of the inhabitants of early modern England, as well as the rich diversity and value of domestic material culture. Further, they enable scholars to reconstruct the social and business networks that are crucial for understanding the period. By offering an introduction to - and transcriptions of - probate inventories, this book provides a new resource for those interested in the early modern household, material culture studies, and the domestic lives of the Huguenot refugees.
