Regular Payments by Frome Overseers of the Poor, 1715

 

Transcribed from the Churchwardens’ Account book at Somerset Record Office. I have capitalised surnames to make them stand out. The payments for the first few months of the year are shown. Click on blue links to download images.

 

See also the 1715 Assessments and Extraordinary Payments

 

‘W’ appears to be short for ‘Widow’. The payments appear quite generous in some cases, but there is enormous variation. It would be interesting to know on what basis they were set.
