Vestry Minute Book

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!

If you want to know more about this document, please contact us.

We have thousands, yes thousands, of other documents concerning the history of Milton Abbas. Many have already been transcribed but there are still plenty to do. If you would like to help then contact us. We have high resolution images of our documents which can be shared online.
