ST STEPHEN IN BRANNEL OVERSEERS OF THE POOR ACCOUNTS


(This material was submitted by Jessie Evans. It mostly mentions the Truscott surname, but there are many other surnames listed. Jessie also submitted the Churchwarden's names.)

Jessie states: "Spelling at the time was not always the way we would spell. To keep the article authentic I have not altered any words only written them the way I saw it. The several parishioners who were bringing sparrows, foxes and badges to the Churchwardens would have been pleased to, not only be paid for their trouble, but also to be helping get rid of the pests. As far as I know there was a shortage of grain and therefore the price would be high. No farmer would want to share his grain with the birds nor animals. I have been told they even ate sparrows in those days.
