Churchwardens Rates and Accounts 1817-1818



Here's an example of the Churchwarden's Rates and Accounts for the Parish of Gerrans for 1817/1818. Please let me know if you think this is interesting and/or of use. There is a set of such accounts for each year but I'm not sure whether it's worth transcribing any more years. I suspect that the Rates section (the list of names & properties) is of some genealogical interest but the expenses section is of much less interest - other than to see certain people being paid for work for the Church.
