Scope and Content

From H. Jenks and Thomas Jenks of Shropshire, primarily relating to the selection of a curate for Dudleston in Ellesmere parish [Shropshire]; they ask Samuel Egerton to speak to the Duke of Bridgewater [Francis Egerton, his ward] regarding the selection; they recommend a Mr Thomkiss, whom they believe will lessen discontent among the inhabitants who wish to choose their own curate.
