"Probate Inventories" by Jameson Wooders (Tue. 28 Feb, 2017 7:15 pm - 10:00 pm)

Probate inventories are fascinating documents listing what someone owned when they died, so
they give information about what it was like to live and work in early
modern England.  They list household furniture, bedding, cooking
utensils, objects for eating and drinking, clothing, jewellery and
luxury items, in addition to farm stock and trade tools and goods.
Although their survival depends on gender and status, if one survives
for an ancestor then it is possible to learn much more about how they
lived than might otherwise be forthcoming from parish registers.
