… the clothing of a Sussex rector 1656 - 1679

This talk uses the household account book of Giles Moore, rector of Horsted Keynes in Sussex, which provides an insight into the supply and acquisition of textiles and clothing, as well as choices of a well-to-do country parson. His attitudes to shopping and clothing through his selection of shops, trade and craftsmen, and his concerns about excessive prices, and his accessory choices.
