We are finding additional information and documents that relate to our families, which we hope to add to this section of the site over time.
They are items such as: Land tax documents, which often list owners and occupiers; Settlement Certificates; Overseers of the Poor Accounts; Road Surveyors Accounts; Parish Relief records.
We're also learning about our ancestors' work, which for us involves the local copper and brass industries.
We'd welcome any thoughts for expanding this section of the site and invite your participation as we go forward.
Please Contact Us with comments, additions, corrections, submissions or suggestions.
