Further Details

In what seems to be the original calf, now very worn indeed. Printed for J. Robinson, in Ludgate-street, 1745. Title continues: “Together with their Titles, Additions, and Places of Abode; the Parishes and Townships where their Lands lay; the Names of the then Tenants, or occupiers thereof; and the Annual Valuation of them, as estimated by themselves. Translated to the late Commissioners for the Forfeited Estates of England and Wales, after the Unnatural Rebellion in the North, in the Year 1715. As appears by the Returns of the Clerks of the Peace for the several Counties, pursuant to an Act of Parliament made for Registering their Estates, in the First Year of the reign of his said late Majesty”. Contents: title page, dedication (to the King), Preface, list of Counties with the totals calculated for each, then names of nonjurors etc in no discernible order but arranged county by county, in alphabetical order of county. Gives name, status or occupation, place of residence and place of property where these are not the same, and annual value of the property as declared by the named person. Thus Thomas Howard, Duke of Norfolk, declares estates worth £1609, 10 shillings and one farthing annually in Sussex, while one Nicholas, no surname, of Elderidge, Yeoman, declares £8 and 5 shillings. Condition: Top board detached, bottom board very nearly so. Text block firm. Some age-darkening to pages.
