Churchwardens' accounts for the period of the English Reformation provide some of the clearest views of the impact of that most fundamental movement on individual parishes. This edition presents the first thirty years or so of the surviving accounts for Boxford, beginning mid-way through Henry VIII's reign and ending when Elizabeth was settled on the throne. The accounts show the pattern of income and expenditure before the Reformation, then the disruptions of Reformation and Counter-Reformation, and finally the settling down as a Protestant church. Equipped with a comprehensive glossary and extensive notes on the personal names occurring in the text, this volume makes a rare and valuable contribution to the study of the Reformation in England.
