Churchwardens Rates & Accounts 1845-1848



Here's another example of the Churchwarden's Rates and Accounts for the Parish of Gerrans for 1845 to 1848.

Looks like they raised enough cash in 1845 to last until 1848. However I think this coincides with a period of significant disrepair.

*NOTE: No entry in the total column for this entry and I think it's an error in the accounts! Did Jethro HARRIS pay or not and if he did, where did the cash go?
