Norfolk: Blofield - 1819-25 - Churchwardens' Payments

Blofield 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 rate was levied on the occupiers (who may not have owned the land) and based upon the value of the property (which was usually a rental valuation). Both occupiers and owners are found 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 317/73(S) and microform MF 959/7] and which contains the Churchwardens' accounts book for 1772-1825 and these are the payments for the years 1819-25.

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.
