A Brief is the technical name denoting Letters Patent granted for the collection of charitable benevolences to poor suffers by fire or other or other casualties. They are generally granted by the bishop of the diocese, but are essentially Royal documents. The parish of Marwood is comprised of the hamlets of Middle Marwood, Blakewell, Farleigh, Guineaford, Kings-Heanton, Mill town, Mudford, and Prixford. The Church of St Michael has a 13th century chancel, and a tower of later date. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. The Internet Archive makes available, in its Community Texts Collection (originally known as Open Source Books), books that have been digitised by Google from a number of libraries. These are books on which copyright has expired, and are available free for educational and research use. This rare book was produced from a copy held by the University of Michigan Library, and is available from the Internet Archive.
