Norfolk: Baconsthorpe - Churchwardens' Collections

Turkish Slaves Release Appeal 1670

Baconsthorpe 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).
Occasionally appeals were made via a brief (which was issued by royal mandate) to raise money for disasters and other events. This was read out in church and a collection made in the church (and sometimes later in the parish) for the good cause.

For more information on these records see the Parish Accounts page.


This is one item from a Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference NRS 21142 and microform MF 969/6] which contains the Churchwardens' accounts book for 1663-1713.
