This CD contains three volumes of the Chetham Society dedicated to Lancashire & Cheshire wills and inventories 1477-1807. The first (Volume 3 new series) includes fulsome transcriptions of 52 wills and inventories proved at Chester in the sixteenth century. This was originally published as volume 33 of the old series by the Society but this addition includes the abstracts of 141 wills and inventories proved at Chester between 1545 and 1650, which can be found nowhere else.

The second volume (Volume 28 new series) was originally published in 1894 includes transcripts of wills and inventories proved at Chester between 1572 and 1696, as well as 108 Lancashire and Cheshire wills proved at either Richmond or York between 1542 and 1650.

The third volume (Volume 37 new series) is a continuation of the series and contains the fulsome abstracts with genealogical notes of some 60 wills and their inventories, mainly from individuals from the more elevated ranks of society, although the volume includes the wills of yeomen, schoolmasters and clergymen from the middle ranks of society. It is an essential resource for the study of society and family history in these two counties in the 16th and 17th centuries.
