Aldborough raised money at various times, to either support its poor (from the Overseers' Rate) or to pay for other parish expenses (from the Churchwardens' Rate). This was based upon the value of property which was owned by people living in and outside the parish. For more information on these records see the Parish Accounts page.
This is one item from a Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference PD 220/30 and microform MF712/20] which contains the Churchwardens' accounts (for the years 1670-1818).
Note that only extracts have been transcribed but this includes most items which mention surnames. Common events eg. bread/wine, some non-specific trade bills etc. have for the most part been excluded.
