This is not specific to any one county, but we all have to figure out rods,
acres, shillings, and other oddities of the old systems of measurement.
There is a very helpful site set up by Alan Stanier:
Weights and Measures.
Relative Value of Sums of Money. This page has many tables comparing the
relative earnings of different occupations over the centuries. Both
fascinating and invaluable.
