Note on Husband: George Frederick WOOD (1)

Freeman of City of Canterbury 13 July 1830

Note on Husband: George Frederick WOOD (2)

Appointed as one of the Overseers (there were usually two appointted) for All Saints Ward for 1851/52. Information published in Kentish Gazette 15 Apr 1851. In 1771 an Act of Parliament allowed the city parishes to be rated as a whole. From 1728 to 1850 the workhouse for all city parishes was the Poor Priests Hospital in Stour Street, St Margarets Parish Canterbury; now the museum of Canterbury and situated opposite 19 Margaret Street. 1850/51 was the time when the poor of Canterbury parishes were moved from the city centre to the suburbs and the large Victorian Workhouse in Nunnery Fields, St Mary Bredin Parish. That building had only been started in the autumn of 1849 and was to house 400 poor from all of the parishes in the City and Borough of Canterbury.

George Frederick would have held a book which showed the rate to collect and from whom and those who received aid from the parish.
