A Guide for Family and Local Historians
Stuart A. Raymond, 6th July 2016

For over 400 years, between the fourteenth and nineteenth centuries, the Justices of the Peace were the embodiment of local government for our ancestors. The records they kept, and those of the other county officials during the same period, are an essential source for local and family historians, and Stuart Raymond’s handbook is the ideal guide to them. He shows how and why they were created, what information they contain, and how they can be accessed and used.
