From Preface: I became so fascinated by these wills and inventories that I wanted to find out more about the people who lived in the village of Over Norton in times past. My aim is that this book will help to draw a picture of life in Over Norton during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and bring some of the inhabitants to life.
