Tuttington 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 a Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference PD 401/34 and microform MF943/1 (starting at frame 63)] containing the Overseers' accounts (1802-1815) of payments to the poor and these are the accounts for Michaelmas 1809 to Michaelmas 1815.
Note that only extracts have been transcribed but this includes most items which mention surnames. Some names occur many times and not all of these are listed here. For more information on all the weekly payments etc. see the NRO document.
