Protestation Returns 1641-42 and other contemporary listings

Jeremy Gibson and Alan Dell (Federation of Family History Societies, 2004 update), A5, 83pp, ISBN 1-86006-1818

As with other Gibson Guides this is a county-by-county listing of the surviving Protestation Returns, covering nearly a third of English parishes. When taken together with the information found from the Collection in aid of distressed Protestants in Ireland, Subsidies, Poll tax, Assessment of grant, vow and covenant and the Solemn league and covenant it is possible to reach conclusions about people and places in the 1640s, before the Hearth Tax. All these returns are arranged by hundreds in a county, and there are outline maps to assist you.
