Note:- This book is available to view on ancestry.com - Go to the card index; input Dorset to bring up all the Dorset records; select the 'Dorset, England, Poor Law and Parish Records, 1511-1997' file; then select the Parish or Poor Law Union for 'Dorchester, Holy Trinity' and under Record type 'Vestry Minutes'; I have included image numbers to aid locating entries as it has not (at Jan 2015) been indexed.. It will take me some time to complete this transcription as there are 584 images - but I have completed parts 1 & 2 for the period 1728 - 1790 and will gradually update this file


These accounts can often add valuable background to events of the day. For example the fathers of bastards are sometimes named; marriage licences bought to help prevent single women seeking support; the recently deceased referred to as widows often then fell onto the parish for support. They also identify who were churchwardens and overseers and even some of the more important parishioners.
