The Gedling “Town Book” 1665-1714: Village Government and Taxation in later Stuart Nottinghamshire


ISBN-13: 9780902719231

Categories: ,



Transcripts of the unusually complete financial accounts of the constables, churchwardens and overseers of the poor of the parish of Gedling near Nottingham for the period 1665-1714. Also included in this volume is a list of inhabitants showing how farmers and other substantial residents were required to serve as unpaid parish officers. The accounts provide not only a picture of Gedling in the seventeenth century, but also show how an ordinary English parish coped with the day-to-day demands of raising taxes for such matters as church repairs, relieving the poor and national wars. 136pp
