Norfolk: Starston - 1761 - 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 Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference PD 119/130 and microform MF1406/8] is the Overseers' Rate for 1761. It is part of a series containing various years from 1747 onwards.

The Rate document is preceded by one detailing the Farms (Occupiers/Acreage/Crops etc.) and some valuations for the same year.
