Norfolk: Starston - 1779 - Overseers' Payments

Starston 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 PD 119/110 and microform MF1405/12] and is from the Overseers' accounts (1779-1806) of payments to the poor for the year 1779. Note that after the June 21st entry some minor payments have been omitted.
