Probate Inventories of Newport People

This collection of transcriptions of Newport (Shropshire) people of the 17th and 18th centuries was transcribed from the originals, now held at Stafford Archives, by Barrie Trinder and a group of his students.

Selecting a letter from the list below will display a choice of names with that initial letter and selecting the name will display an image of the transcription in a new tab. Close this tab to return to the list.

Some individuals have more than one page, which are viewed separately.
The dates are, in the main, those shown on the inventory but some have no date in which case the date of the will is given.
The dates for this set of inventories are 1650 to 1750.
