Excerpt from The Chantry Certificates, And, the Edwardian Inventories of Church Goods
The documents known as the Chantry Certificates and the Inventories of Church Goods, which are now in the Public Record Office, describe endowments and possessions Of which the parish church... es were almost entirely deprived during the reign of Edward VI. The real motive for the confiscation of local endowments and church plate was the need of money for wars with France and Scotland. The Exchequer made a considerable profit by the spoils of the parishes, and a new official class was in a large measure enriched.
