Prepared by Michael Steer

After the Reformation the church of each parish was not only its place for worship, but also the seat and centre for the transaction of all business concerning the parish. In it, according to law, the minister had to read aloud from time to time articles of inquiry founded on the Queen's or the diocesan's injunctions, and to admonish wardens and sidemen to present offences under these articles at the next visitation. In it also he gave monition for the annual choice of collectors for the poor; warning for the yearly perambulation of the parish bounds; and public announcement of the six certain days on which each year every parishioner had to attend in person or send wain and men for the repair of highways.
