Entitled, Wills and Inventories,

Wills can be a very revealing source of information, not just giving the names of the family members, but also hints or even downright rude references to there character and spending habits. Farmers try there best to micromanage the harvest after their deaths. Widows leave their things down to the last detail, such as who gets the table cloth their daughters or servants.
Some men are more fussed about who gets which horse than who is going to look after the orphan children.
Inventories list what the family owned, to the last pot and pan and weaner pig.
Eve McLaughlin tells us where to find these wills, some are even available on line. A display of wills will be available to browse.
