Just registered here in hope of understanding & learning family history resources for early 1700s and earlier. Right now, I'm only researching the Spencer line (not the Spencer-Churchill one!). I believe that most of what I'm looking for is in the Warwickshire geography.

Thank you for the links. By any chance do you have any direction for me in finding info going back to the 1600s. I've been able to track my Spencer ancestors, directly, back to the mid 1650s. However, I do not have any verifying info to be sure these are part of my tree. Any direction would be greatly appreciated.
 
If the published trees have no reliable sources and if the relevant parish records can't be found then you are stuck. One of my direct lines is stuck in 1795 because a baptism can't be found.

Hello, and welcome.
Wills can be a valuable resource, especially if parish records are non-existent, or patchy; they sometimes are very helpful in sorting family relationships.
For the 17th century, the hearth tax records can place a home owner in a location. Apprenticeship records are another helpful source, as are monumental Inscriptions (if available).
A search on Discovery on the National Archives might throw up some documents. Also the Shakespeare Trust (I think that's what it's called) has an online catalogue for searching.
Not all of these may be available for Warwickshire of course.
