Settlement Examinations

There are 42 Settlement Examinations of people from Milton Abbas in the Dorset History Centre at PW-MIL/OV/3/2/ 1 – 41. They are available to view on Microfilm MIC/R/1632. They are difficult to read.

They are a very important source of information for social history research. They contain a lot of information that is not otherwise available.

They are not available on Ancestry as far as we can tell. Let us know if you find them by contacting us.

We are working on transcribing them, we have done most of them thanks to one of our members.
