PUDSEY: Transcription of PUDSEY OVERSEERS, 1743-1887

Definition of Overseer taken from the Imperial Dictionary of 1850:
In England, the duties of overseers are, to provide for the poor in every parish, to collect the poor-rate, to remove such persons as the parish is not liable to support, and to do other acts incidental to the management of the poor, under the directions of the poor-law commissioners, or their assistant commissioner, or according to the provisions of any local act.
