19th CENTURY CLOTHING CULTURE OF WOMEN LIVING IN ÇORUM ACCORDING TO THE TEREKE RECORDS

Abstract
Among the Ottoman historical sources, Court Records have an important place. Court Records are the sources that include all the events of the society in the Ottoman Empire and the court decisions related to them. Tereke registers in these records provide us with very important data about social and economic history. Tereke registers containing all kinds of movables and real estates left to the heirs of deceased persons are important sources in terms of clarifying the socio-economic structure of the place where they are recorded. Sixteen records were examined for the clothing culture of Çorum women between 1258-1324 / 1842-1906 which were determined according to Çorum Court Records. When these records are examined, it has been seen that there are 103 female Tereke registers that will illuminate the subject. After the identification of the 103 records and the dictates, three people, the richest, the poorest and the average, were chosen to represent the different groups in the society. In order to determine these individuals, different intervals were chosen. These are all Muslim women. In this way, through the records found in the book, you will have an idea about women's clothing on a section in Çorum history. Thus, it is hoped that contribution will be made to the history of Çorum culture.
