Berkshire Record Society, edited by Ian Mortimer (1995, ISBN 0 9524946 1 2)

Glebe terriers are descriptions of the property of a benefice. They include information about the parsonage, the glebe land (land belonging to the benefice) and tithes, and are an invaluable source for the study of farming, for determining the extent of open-field and enclosed land, and for place names. Berkshire’s fine collection of terriers provides a comprehensive picture of the agriculture and landscape of the county in the early seventeenth century.
