Bosbury Probate material 1581-1600

Detail of the inventory of John Brown, 1589 Herefs. RO 9/1/56

There are 19 surviving probate documents for Bosbury people between 1581 and 1600. Three of these were proved at the Prerogative Court of Canterbury. These were for William Wood and Anthony Washburne, both described as 'gentlemen' and Thomas Lawrence, a fuller, which gives an indication of the importance of the cloth trade at this period.
