Lelanters 1770-1771
This compilation Maxwell Adams 2005
This contains people listed in 1771-1772 in the Lelant poor book, the accounts of the Lelant
parish overseers of the poor (CRO P/120/12/1).
The recipients are the people who received payments from the parish. They are both paupers
receiving allowances for their everyday and special needs and people who received payments
for their work for the parish, including looking after the sick or providing goods and services.
The ratepayers are those listed in the poor book who paid rates to the parish levied on their land
and property. For some ratepayers the location of their land is specified: these are mainly outside the
village and those who have no land listed are probably living in Lelant village. The officials are
those responsible for collecting in and paying out the money and verifying and authorising
the accounts. Note that the family members of the recipients and ratepayers are not listed here
or in the original poor book.
The original poor book covers 1770-1802 and gives the amounts paid to and by the parish and
in many of the latter cases the purposes of the payments.
