Because of the destruction of Bath and Wells diocesan probate material in 1942 during a bombing raid on Exeter there are now very few inventories remaining.
This publication's index includes 36 inventories found amongst administrators' accounts, some 100 inventories separated in a class of their own found amongst the Bath and Wells diocesan deposit, and some 4,180 inventories found amongst the Sheppard collection once housed at Taunton Castle.
Most entries are for the period up to 1750. Indexes of places and deceased descriptions (i.e. occupation or condition) are included.
