Extracted Sanderson and Others
In order for anyone to receive assistance in times of need, people had to be able to prove that they ‘belonged’ to the Parish. This could be through birth, apprenticeship, land ownership, or being able to rent property above a certain value. The Parish Overseers would review each application, often attempting to refuse payment if possible. They kept detailed records.
These transcripts are for ‘Sanderson’ ‘Ibbotson’ and ‘Dyson’ in Bradfield. Poor Law records make fascinating and useful resources for finding out more of our ordinary ancestors.
