Norfolk: Starston - 1747 - Overseers' Rate

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 119/129 and microform MF1406/7] and is the Overseers' Rate for 1747. It is part of a series containing various years from 1747 onwards. This document also includes other information about rents and amounts payable.
Note that there is another document with the reference PD 119/128 containing the Poor Rate for 1747 (amongst other years).
