The Early Modern Genealogists, William Dugdale and the Heralds Visitation

With this episode it was a question of what could I leave out rather than include!  I kept reminding myself that not everyone is as much of an anorak as I am – but I hope you found some of it interesting.

Two books for a good background to the “Early Moderns” are Anthony Wagner’s English Genealogy and David Hey’s Oxford Companion to Local and Family History.  Neither of Jan Broadway’s books on the subject should be missed.  Another biography of William Dugdale is by  Catherine Richardson and Christopher Dyer

The Dugdale Society is more about Warwickshire than the man but their website is still worth a look, while a look at his correspondence is good for anyone interested in history.

Here is the list of abbreviations which I mentioned in the podcast,  and also the Harleian Society
