Norfolk: Ashill - 1787 - Poor Charity
Ashill like a number of Parishes had Charities which had left money to help its poor. These are described in 1811 by Zachary Clark in his book on Norfolk Charities .
For more information on these and other records see the Parish Accounts page.
This is one item from a Norfolk Record Office document [with reference PD 548/95 and microform MF718/11] containing Miscellaneous Papers for 1818-1837 (but it also contains earlier documents).
The original document contains the fuel accounts for 17/Dec/1787 which are fully transcribed. The other dates covered by the document ie. 30/Dec/1787, 15/Jan/1788, 28/Jan/1788, 10/Feb/1788, 16/Mar/1788, 14/Apr/1788 and 2/Jul/1788 are only mentioned here when people were first given fuel at a date later than 17/Dec/1787.
