The Complete Parish Officer 1772 The Complete Parish Officer 1772

Ref: 0766hrt
ISBN:

This is one of the most important resources that we have seen, and one that should be of great interest to all family historians. Published in 1772 it was the handbook of the duties and responsibilities of the Parish Officer.

It includes the duties of the overseers of the poor, the power in relieving, employing and settling, etc. of poor persons; the laws relating to the poor, and settlements, and the statutes concerning masters and servants. The right of Settlement was something that was of great concern to all of our ancestors. Basically, to be able to have right of settlement in a parish, one had to be born there, married there or serving an apprenticeship there. Proof was all-important, especially if a person became destitute and needed support from the parish. Parish officers would have people literally evicted and transported to another parish under such circumstances. What happened about bastardy? What obligations does an apprentice have to his master and vice-versa? This book describes it all, together with the supporting laws.

Other sections of the book include the authority and duty of constables, tithingmen, etc.; churchwardens, how they should be chosen, their duties, church accounts, repairing of churches, etc. There are some very interesting punishments for not attending church and keeping to the rules! There is a section on surveying the highways, Scavengers, methods of taxation of the highways, and laws. And finally, the duties and powers of Watchmen.

Criminal and civil proceedings in the County of Hertfordshire over a period of more than three hundred years.

The Herts Genealogist and Antiquary Volume 2 - William Brigg 1897 The Herts Genealogist and Antiquary Volume 2 - William Brigg 1897

Ref: 0893
ISBN:

An unusual collection of transcripts of many types of documents.

Sources include abstracts of wills, feet of fines, marriage licences, subsidy rolls, parish registers. church terriers, inquisitions post mortem, rentals and surveys, ministers accounts, funeral certificates, deeds, court rolls and monumental inscriptions.

The family names and the places are random and if you are lucky you may find a reference to an ancestor. The importance of this type of book is that it provides examples of documents and helps you to understand what they contain and how they might be used in your own research. With this in mind the book should appeal to a much wider audience beyond Hertfordshire as it really is a learning, rather than finding, aid.

He became a Freman of the Borough. Te Mayor seized the goods of William Barber, who had lately drowned himself, and they were valued at £3, 17s. It was agreed that the widow should have all the goods restored to her, she paying for the same 10s, and discharging the Coroner's fees, which she did. It was reported that malt of the best sort was to be bought at 24s a quarter, and the best beer was therefore to be sold at 4s the kinderkin, and the second sort as 2s 6d the kinderkin, and ale at 1s 6d the tub.'

March 10th 1685 - 'Robert Hazles and John Wilkinson were elected Assistants in the room of John Tisdall and Christopher Loft, "who had neglected their duty," William Prentice and Robert Romford in the room of Ralph Gladman and William Butler, removed out of the Borough, and John Sparling, hatter, in the room of John Burton, jun, deceased.'
