About Wiltshire and Its Worthies

This database contains topographical information on Wiltshire and biographical information on its worthies, or its prominent individuals. Written by Joseph Stratford, a Wiltshire native, this volume originated from a series of sixteen papers published in the Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard. This database would be of worth to any researcher of Wiltshire. Even if your ancestors are not mentioned in the biographical portion of the work (because it only includes the more prominent individuals), the topographical portion may be a great asset to your family history research, providing you with information about the places your ancestor lived.
