In our transcription of the Sunday School records of 1789, one boy is given the job of “Usher” and receives more money than the other attendees. We have not been able to find out what the role of usher at Sunday School was this soon after their foundation. We would be grateful if any of our readers would care to research this. It is no use typing “usher” into Google as it brings up thousands of results for modern day America!

Our next meeting is on Wed 5 June 2019, Bryan Phillips will be talking about the Churchwardens’ records starting in 1638.
