Mitcham in the Mid-17th Century:
A Surrey Village under Stress
Studies in Merton History 5: by E N Montague
This is a revised version of a diploma thesis, in which, using primary sources where possible, the author examines the impact of the Civil War on the semi-rural parish which was Mitcham at the time. Topics discussed include recruitment, taxation, parish administration, social structure and even the property market.
