|ENGLAND:: SOMERSET: THE MYNSTER ON THE ILE OR, THE STORY OF THE ANCIENT PARISH OF ILMINSTER, THE ONE ROYAL PECULIAR IN THE COUNTY OF SOMERSET. BY JAMES STREET M.A. CD-WIN/MAC|
Published in 1904 this is probably the most complete history of Ilminster ever written which certainly has not been bettered since this date. In his preface the author “professes neither antiquarian learning nor literary finish: but he thinks he can distinguish that which interests ordinary folk; and claims to have discovered a wealth of interesting matter, connected with the history of the town of which he has been Vicar”. Starting with the coming of the Normans it continues to the late nineteenth century, with the Churchwardens Accounts Henry VIII – Edward VI printed in full, sections on the Black Death, Nonconformity, Monmouth and many others, makes this rare book on CD, with over four hundred pages, invaluable for historians and genealogists alike.
