Calendar of Inquisitions Post Mortem
Calendar of Inquisitions Post Mortem, H.C. Maxwell Lyte
Inquisitions Post Mortem (also known as escheats) are an important category of records for historians and genealogists. They consist of inquests taken after the death of a tenant-in-chief of the crown to establish which lands were held by the tenant, and who should succeed to them as heir. They are therefore a key record of landownership and genealogy.
TannerRitchie is republishing these key sources, both for England as a whole, and with the Abstracts published from London in the 16th century.
