Marriage Settlements, 1601-1740 by Lloyd Bonfield

Book Description

The history of the family has become an area of great interest, yet the property arrangements entered into upon marriage, a crucial aspect of the process of familial wealth transmission and distribution in the landed classes in early modern England, have never been systematically studied. In the light of evidence provided by hitherto unused family muniments, Dr Bonfield analyses the legal, social and economic aspects of these settlements, and discusses the development and impact of the strict settlement.

Devising, Dying and Dispute by Lloyd Bonfield Devising, Dying and Dispute, Hardback (May 2012)

Seventeenth-century England was a country obsessed with property rights. For only those who owned property were considered to have a vested interest in the maintenance of law, order and social harmony. This book investigates what litigation over the validity of wills reveals about the interplay between society and law.
