Scope and Content

The booklets below are annual registers of the poor persons in Altrincham who were recipients of charity bedding. Recipients are listed alphabetically, and for each person the numbers of blanket, sheets and (until 1791) coverlets received are recorded in ruled columns at the right-hand margin of the page. Rather than being revised annually, a register once compiled was copied in later years, with the names of new recipients being inserted in additional lists at the end of each booklet.
