Excerpt from Wills and Inventories Illustrative of the History, Manners, Language, Statistics, &C. Of the Northern Counties of England, From the Eleventh Century Downwards, Vol. 1
There are two entire classes of public records, both highly important, which I em conscious have been but imperfectly used - I mean the Inquisitions Post Mortem and the early Wills. - Of the early Wuls we do not possess even a printed catalogue of the names of Testators, much more any work which should com municate to the public the choicer portions of the infor mation, topographical, historical, biographical, literary, which is lurking, unseen by every eye, in the dispersed, the dark and dusty depositories of the testamentary evi dence of England. Iam persuaded, by experience in such enquiries, that there is no department of antiquarian research, topography, public or literary history, lives of our eminent men in every department, manners, language, which would not be essentially benefited by a publication of matter, which to an experienced eye would appear of importance, in Wills of the Plantagenet, Tudor, and Stuart reigns, while a better acquaintance with these evi deuces would be the creation of a new world in our gen tilitial Antiquities.
