Glossary of Terms for Inventory Transcribers

In Barrie Trinder and Jeff Cox’s book, “Yeomen and Colliers”, a large number of transcriptions of inventories for Telford ancient parishes have been included. There are also two glossary of terms, one of a general nature and the other specific to terms found in inventories of mercers. These might provide useful to transcribers especially when working on unusual or unfamiliar words.
