One of our amazing transcribers, Shirley Chick, has just completed the Milton Abbas Vestry Minute Book 1863 – 1924. The original book is in our possession.
The resulting 65 page document is now available for our members to research. The book is name rich, and contains over 50 occurrences each of the names TETT, HAMBRO, FOOKES, SPILLER, GEORGE, COX, ROBERTS, PLAYER, LOVELL and incidences of many other names then living in Milton Abbas.
Here is part of the first page 1863
The Hambro Arms is still our village pub, although I don’t believe it holds Vestry Meetings anymore!
