Scope and Content

Copy annual accounts of tithe rent charges collected in Bowdon parish in the years 1855 and 1862-1882. EGR14/36/1-7 were probably compiled soon after the corresponding originals. However, the pages of EGR14/36/8-24 are variously watermarked "1877", "1880" and "1881", and the items are all written in the same hand. These copies were probably made c.1883 upon the transfer of the Cheshire Estates to the Stamford Trustees.

All items are entitled "RENT CHARGE OF BOWDON PARISH", printed on paper labels pasted to the upper covers. All items except EGR14/36/1-4, /10 & /20 are annotated "Copy" in ink or pencil on the upper covers.
