Administrative/Biographical history: Prior to 1894, monthly parish vestry meetings dealt with ecclesiastical matters, rates, and local issues. Parish councils were established by the Local Government Act 1894. The records contain mainly minute books, financial statements, correspondence, copies of planning applications, and rate lists. Civil registration began in 1837 but from 1894 onwards parish councils became fully responsible for civil administration.
