Norfolk: Hunworth - 1792 - Overseers' Rate

Hunworth 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 Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference NRS 10134,22 F 7 and microform MF 1795/142-200] is part of the Overseers' accounts book for 1770-1791.
