On The British Antiquities of Warwickshire.
By M.H. Bloxam Esq.
Warwickshire County Record Office is working in partnership with the Birmingham and Midland Society for Genealogy and Heraldry to improve access to records and rare local history publications, many of which are only available for view at the Record Office in Warwick.
Amongst the books that have been chosen from our library are published sets of the earliest surviving justice of the peace records for Warwickshire.
The Order Books contain orders, proceedings and resolutions of the Quarter Sessions. These are often administrative in nature and were necessitated by the legislation of the Tudor Parliaments and Privy Council. Much of the business of the Order Books is taken up with the administration of poor relief by local overseers. The records therefore provide more information about those who may otherwise only be names in a register. A useful index to names and places is available for free for researchers to check to see if the volumes may be of interest to them.
