Stoodleigh Vestrymen - 3

Provided by Chris Whitehead

A list of vestrymen taken from the Stoodleigh Overseers accounts Vol. 3 (1788-1809). 

(Devon Record Office  - 2985A/PO4 STOODLEIGH)

The vestry consisted of the tenant farmers, plus the land owners (if they were resident). They met at Easter each year and appointed the various parish officials- waywarden, constable, churchwarden, & overseers of the poor. Some years the appointments had to be approved by a JP; the vestry would nominate three or four men, and the JP choose two. So "actual" are the ones chosen & those "nominated" were not.  

The entries marked "vestry" are the men who signed off the accounts and signed their attendance at the vestry meeting.
