This listing forms part of the Dils & Schwartz Collection which is composed of all the notes from the very detailed research carried out by those two ladies, for the publication of their book, 'Tudor and Stuart Shrivenham.' It is a remarkable collection and contains a huge amount of material, much of it translated from the original latin in which it was written.
This particular file is relevant to the lives of women in Shrivenham from 1520 - 1710. It covers their lives, wills, burials, widowhood and inheritance, personal effects and rentals.
