Godstone Poor Law Union Application and Report Books index CD

£5.00
The application and report books were a record of those applying for poor relief, kept by the relieving officer. They hold a wealth of detail relating to the applicants, which may include their immediate family, their occupations, addresses, ages and the reasons why they applied for poor relief. Sadly, few survive for Surrey, with the exception of Godstone Union which has a set of these books from 1869 to 1915. Applications for poor relief were made either to the Relieving Officer or to the Board of Guardians directly, and the details entered into the book. The books were 'signed off' by the Board of Guardians every quarter, and a note of the decision or direction by the Board inserted at the quarterly meeting. The volumes include the parishes of Bletchingley, Caterham, Chelsham, Crowhurst, Farleigh, Godstone, Horne, Limpsfield, Lingfield, Oxted, Tandridge, Tatsfield, Titsey, Warlingham and Woldingham.

£15.00
For any student of the domestic interior, levels of wealth, the circulation of goods, the tools and utensils of various trades, indeed of the material surroundings in which people from all sections of society lived out their lives, probate inventories are a fundamental source. The inventories and valuations of domestic goods were drawn up after a person's death as part of the process of proving the will and this volume brings together transcripts of surviving inventories from the reign of Elizabeth I. Together they provide a fascinating window on the way people lived, from the bustle of Southwark to the remote rural areas in the south of the county.
