Newnham Probate Material 1581-1600
Four inventories survive for this period including John Hulet, rector of Newnham and Mapledurwell. John Smythe has a lease of the parsonage but the reason for this is not apparent.
These transcriptions have been made from copies of original probate documents supplied by HRO and TNA. Words have been modernized and punctuation added to make reading easier but names have been transcribed as written. Words in italics indicate omissions in the original document which have been added to make sense of the text. Words in square brackets indicate that they have been transcribed as seen but where the meaning is unclear. Basingstoke is described as being in the county of Southampton, the old name for Hampshire.
Links to the four inventories appear below.
A glossary is attached of unusual words.
