This book contains a transcription of a notebook kept by three successive Berkshire coroners during the period 1775-1813.  The book was commenced in 1775 by William Prince who recorded the date, place and subject of the inquest, the distance travelled and the name of the person from whom he hired transport.  In June 1785 Chas. E. Osborn was elected to the office of Coroner.  He recorded the date, place and subject of the inquest, the distance travelled and the verdict.  Osborn died in October 1800 and John Richards was elected to the office in November 1800.  Richards records the same information as his predecessor, the last entry being made in the book on 4 January 1814.  The vast majority of the inquests took place on the eastern side of the county.

The first census for the whole of Britain (excluding Ireland) was taken in 1801 and thereafter every ten years, but up to 1841 they were purely numerical - individual names not being required.  However, some enumerators made up their own lists which sometimes survive amongst individual parish documents.  The document which is the subject of this publication would appear to have been made as an aid to the incumbent when compiling the official 1801 census.  All members of each household are named and ages given for most children, including many who had grown up and married or left home.  Most wives are given with their maiden surname and it is noted if they are second or subsequent wives.  There are also comments regarding some of the individuals.
