Furtho Wills held at the Northants Record Office & The National Archive

NRO Indexed by Kay Collins
People left some things in their wills which seem curious to us today. We know that they left money or goods to the Church to support its upkeep and for this they expected to be given the benefit of forgiveness in the afterlife. But in the wider community you could receive similar absolution for endowing a bridge or contributing to maintenance of the highways. This is how the infrastructure was kept in good shape - a large number of people with money could be relied upon to buy "indulgences" from the bishop via their bequests.
