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] containing the Churchwardens' accounts for the years 1670-1818.
