Scope and Content

The overseers' papers of Enstone are

unusual in that they contain much more

material after, rather than before, the

1834 Poor Law. In particular, there is a

long sequence of Poor Rate Books from

1838 to 1886, as well as some post-1834

Removal Orders.

However, some 17th and 18th century

overseers' accounts (with records on

their appointment) may be found at PAR97/4/F1/1-2 above.
