Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.The aim of this project was to produce a social and economic history of the town of Thame, Oxfordshire in the seventeenth century, with special emphases on the way in which local families controlled the town's economy and on the connections between agriculture and the trades of the town. A biographical dictionary is being prepared in addition to the database and this has involved some family reconstitution.
The Thame History Research Group has its origins in a local history class organised by Oxford University Department for Continuing Education.
The Thame History Group has transcribed and made available a range of documents for seventeenth century Thame including wills, inventories, parish registers, hearth tax records, rentals, Civil War assessments, school accounts, lay subsidy returns, frankpledge court rolls, poor rate books, quarter session records and monumental inscriptions in the parish church.
The database consists of a series of tables corresponding to the different sources used, a table holding surnames with information on spelling variations and family groupings, a table holding surnames, occupations and occupation codes, one holding status and status codes, and a table holding bibliographic information about the sources used.
