Norfolk: Salthouse - 1792-1796 - Overseers' Payments
Salthouse 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 23/13 and microform MF1625/8] containing the Overseers' accounts (1792-1809) of payments to the poor.
Note that not every item has been transcribed but most of those containing names have been extracted. More information can be found on the original where some names occur more than once.
