These bills and receipts relate to all aspects of the churchwardens' duties at Oxford St. Mary Magdalen, including payments to parish officials, purchases of small items, repairs to the church and payments to charities. From the 1850s, several bills refer to St. George's Chapel (see PAR208/18). From F3/79, bundles often include cheques.
These documents were found arranged in bundles. In the absence of any other guide to their history, it was decided to list them in these bundles, even where different bundles cover the same years.
