HEport for tijc ^ear 1896-7. 

Bead at the Annual Meetim/, held in the Audit Boom of the 
Chetham Hoqntal, Manchester, October 19th, 1897. 



Since the last Annual Meeting, held on the 13th October, 1896, two 
volumes have been delivered to the Members. Those are Vol. 
XXXIV., the second volume of the Plundered Ministers' Accounts 
for Lancashire and Cheshire ; and Vol. XXXV., the second volume 
of Pleadings and Depositions in the Duchy Court of Lancashire 
in the time of Henry VIII. 

The First of these. The Minutes of the Committee for the relief 
of Plundered Ministers, &c., relating to Lancashire and Cheshire 
between the dates 1654 and 1660, is in continuation of Vol. 
XXVIIL, and has been edited, as was that volume, by Mr. W. A. 
Shaw. The value and importance of these records was pointed out 
in the last Annual Report, and the Council consider that their 
anticipations have been fully justified. The period covered by 
this volume is perhaps one of the most obscure in the later history 
of the two counties, and anything that throws further light, 
particularly on ecclesiastical matters, is welcome. 

The Second Volume, Pleadings and Depositions in the Duchy 
Court of Lancaster in the time of Henry VIIL, has been edited by 
the President, Lt.-Col. Henry Fishwick, F.S.A., and gives us an 
interesting picture of many phases of the social life of Lancashire 
during the early part of the sixteenth century. 



iv Report of the Society. 

These two volumes were issued to Members during the spring 
of this year, so that the Council are able to record again that the 
publications of the Society, so long in arrear, have been issued 
up to date, and for the first time for many years, have been thus 
able to pay all outstanding accounts, and so get rid of a misleading 
credit balance, and show their true financial position, which, the 
Council think, the Members, on reference to the Balance- Sheet, 
will see is a satisfactory one. 

For the current year, Colonel Fishwick is editing a third and 
final volume of the Pleadings and Depositions in the Duchy 
Court of Lancaster for the reigns of Edward VI. and Mary. The 
work is well advanced, and should be ready for issue to the 
Members about Easter. The Rev. J. H. Stanning continues his 
valuable and interesting Royahst Composition Papers, another 
volume of which is now in the press, and should be ready about 
the same time. 

The works that the Council have in view for the near future 
are — first, a Calendar of Assize Rolls for Lancashire down to the 
reign of Edward L, on which Major Parker is now engaged, and 
which the Council think will be a most valuable addition to the 
printed records of the County ; and, secondly. Feet of Fines or Final 
Concords, Richard I. to Edward III., to be edited by Mr. William 
Farrar, which should prove also of the greatest interest. The 
choice of these two volumes has been decided upon, in pursuance 
of a resolution made by the Council last year, to pay more 
attention to an earlier class of records than that hitherto dealt 
with by the Society. Mr. W. F. Irvine has also in hand the 
earliest Ordination Book of the Bishop of Chester, and a portion 
of this is now in type. There will not, however, be enough to 
make a complete volume with this alone, so it is proposed to print 



Report of the Society. V 

with it an Index of Wills and Administrations now preserved at the 
Diocesan Registry, Chester, from the year 1620 to the year 1700. 
Mr. W. H. Price, who compiled the Index from 1487 to 1620, 
printed in volume XXXIII., has undertaken the laborious task of 
carrying the index down to 1700, and the Council is glad to be 
able to report that this is now complete and ready for the press. 

The Council have only to urge once more on each individual 
member the great importance of obtaining fresh subscribers to the 
Society, if the good work which it has done so long is to be 
continued. 

The following is the complete list of the Society's publications 
already printed up to the present time : —

The following points are commended to the attention of those using 
this hook : — 

1. In some cases inventories appear to have become detached 
from the original wills, and so have been placed in different bundles 
and indexed under different years. This list, however, being an 
alphabetical one, such cases will be speedily detected, and it will be 
easy to replace the inventories i?i their proper places. 

2. Where the word " Inv." occurs, it probably signifies that the 
deceased had died intestate, and that an inventory of his goods had 
been fled and administration granted to his representatives. IVhere 
the word " Admon " occurs, it shows that an administration bond had 
been fled as well. In all other cases the wills themselves are extant, 
either with or without the accompanying inventories. 

3. It is to be noted that in the Probate Registry of Chester the 
original wills up to 1838 (and not official transcripts, as in many other 
Probate Registries) are those shown to enquirers. 

4. Owing to the original spelling of the wills having been 
followed in the MS. Index, and allowing for possible misreadings, 
enquirers are particularly desired to search for any name bearing a 
resemblance to that for which they are looking, as for example Leigh 
for Legh or Lee, Newallfor Nowall, Houghton for Haughton, t5fc., t5fc. 

As far as possible this has been indicated by cross references in this 
list. Words now spelt with an i at this time frequently were spelt 
with y. 

5. This list contains all the ivills, inventories, and administration 
bonds now known to be preserved at the Probate Registry, Chester, 
between the years 1761 and 1780 inclusive. It is in continuation of 
volumes 1, 4, 15, 18, 20, 22, and 25 (Indices to the Wills and Inventories 
now preserved at Chester, 1545 to 1620, 1621 to 1650, 1660 to 1680, 
1681 to 1700, 1 70 1 to 1720, 1 72 1 to 1740, and 1741 to i']6oJ, and 
will be followed by others, bringing the lists down to 1800. 

6. /// an Appendix will be found the list of all the wills, proved 
between 1761 and 1780, in which the amount of personalty was less 
than ^40. These wills, which were proved in the Rural Dean's 
Courts, are generally called " Infra " wills, and there are none known 
of earlier date than 1660. They are kept distijict from the other 
wills, and when enquired for it is necessary to clearly describe them as 
being ^^ Infra " and not ordinary wills.
