Norfolk: Starston - 1801
Beating the Parish Boundary

Each parish would at various times go around the boundary so that people might know its extent (called "beating the bounds"). Normally these events would, if recorded, only get a brief mention. This particular one lists the participants and some of their trades.

This is one item from a Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference PD 119/97 and microform MF1806/F0532] and is part of the Churchwardens' accounts for 1686-1950.
