1757-1758 - Churchwardens' Rate

Oxwick with Pattesley raised money at various times, to either support its poor (from the Overseers' Rate) or to pay for other parish expenses (from the Churchwardens' Rate). This rate was levied on the occupiers (who may not have owned the land) and based upon the value of the property (which was usually a rental valuation). Both occupiers and owners are found living in and outside the parish.

For more information on these records see the Parish Accounts page.

This is one item from a Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference PD 666/21 and microform MF1404/7] which is the Town Book for the parish for the period 1709-1791. It also contains the Churchwardens' and Constables' accounts for part of this period.
