Norfolk: West Harling

Overseers' Rate: 1774-1827

West Harling 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 reference PD 27/21 and microform MF/X 259/4] containing the Overseers' accounts for 1771-1828 and this document contains the Overseers' rates for the years 1774 to 1827.

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