Norfolk: Blofield - 1747-1748 - Overseers' Rate

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 Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference PD317/92(S) and microform MF/X/247/21] and is the Overseers rate for the year 1747-8.

Note that only the names of the ratepayers and the valuations have been transcribed and the rates payable have not (but these can either be deduced or found on the original).
