The English Civil War 'Loss Accounts' for Warwickshire
The 'Loss Accounts' itemize the financial and material losses sustained by local inhabitants through Parliamentary activity before and during the First English Civil War between 1642 and 1646. They give fascinating details about individuals and their experiences. The Warwickshire accounts have been transcribed by a team of volunteers directed by Dr Maureen Harris in a project supported by a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant. They are presented here through the courtesy of the Warwickshire County Record Office. For further information see our page ‘An Introduction to the accounts’.
