        Elizabethan Essex - a names index
               The following names are indexed from "Elizabethan Life"
                            by Dr Frederick George Emmison
        Dr Emmison is a former County Archivist of the Essex Record Office
        and has written many books, with the advantage of his unrivalled
        access to Essex historical material.
        This book is full of names, based especially on Wills and on court
        records.  In indexing it, I have tried to include anything directly
        useful in a genealogical sense.  Dr Emmison's own index is very good but
        not quite complete.  In many cases I can supply a little more material
        by reference to the book.  This book is but one volume in a set of five,
        all entitled Elizabethan Life but with different subtitles.
        Where the date of a will is given, it must usually mean that the person
        died within a few years of that date.  In quoting from wills, Dr Emmison
        obviously only picks out odd items.
        I have used abbreviations as necessary.  To save space I have often used
        W1571 instead of will 1571 or 1571 will.  Where I can, I have given the
        place-name at the beginning of the description field.  If you import the
        file into a spread-sheet and parse it, you can sort on the description
        and thus get the file grouped very largely by locations, eg you will find
        over 80 names referenced to Colchester.
            Indexed by Mike Foster, Wellington, 1994.  The book is my own copy.
