Lytchett Matravers Poor Law Records 1809-1815 on CD


SKU: 631 Category:


A transcription of a photocopy of a book of Poor Law Accounts, from a book has either been lost or was destroyed by Dorset archives in the early 1950s.

The Name and Surname fields have been standardised to make it easier to search and some of the narrative has been modified to make it more easily understandable.

The records provide a very good indication of the work of a small parish to deal with the problems of Dorset people living on the edge of the heathland.

The records are in a pdf file.
