Norfolk: Poor Law

(Unions, Incorporations and Workhouses)

The relief of the Poor after the Dissolution of the Monastries was covered by Poor Law Acts in the reign of Elizabeth I in 1601. Further Acts followed in the next 250 years. Villages could build poorhouses (from 1732) and this was done in some parishes. These local Incorporations are indicated by "-I" in their names.

Gilbert's Act 1782 Unions

Gilbert's Act 1782 enabled parishes to group together forming a union (which are listed later) to build workhouses. These are indicated by "-GU" in the name.

Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834

This replaced the parish basis of poor relief. Poor Law Unions were brought in with Boards of Guardians. A number of Incorporations chose not to join the new Unions although some did in later years.
