                  Book cover
FOR THE GOOD OF THIS TOWN: THE JURATS OF MAIDSTONE 1549 - 1660.  Judy Buckley researched the Maidstone oligarchy for her MA by Research at the University of Greenwich in 2008, and has based this book on her dissertation. It describes the origins, occupations, wealth and ideology of the jurats chosen from the granting of Maidstone's first charter until the Restoration. A wealth of new material from original sources will make this a useful book for urban, local and family historians.
