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 contains records of 506 Wills with reference numbers, of which 384 are male and 122 are female between 1544 - 1715 in Shrivenham, Watchfield, Longcot, Fernham, Bourton and Beckett.
