Code: ARA 28
Edited by A. Gibbons, F.S.A.
Published between 1895-1903, these rare quarterly journals (also bound in six volumes) contain a fascinating mixture of transcripts, from the medieval period up to the 19th century (including manor court rolls, wills, parish registers, marriage bonds, lists of strays etc.) as well as family pedigrees.
The coverage is particularly good for Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, but there are also records from several other East Midland and Northern counties of England.
Over 1000 pages, separate indexes for each volume and full of historical detail.
Many hundreds of names listed.
A wonderful resource for family historians.
Code: ARA 150
