Overseers of the Poor Accounts Books

There are four books in all which cover the period 1771 – 1836. No others exist.

One of our transcribers has single handedly just completed the transcription of all 229 pages of the third book in this series which covers the years 1818 to 1836 and we now have a spreadsheet containing 18291 rows of records.

We have now completed the transcription of all four books producing about 60000 records – a fantastic achievement.

A huge thank you to all our transcribers who have spent hundreds of hours working on this.

A great resource for local and family historians. A great legacy for our group.

Our members now have access for their research.
