List of Overseers of the Poor – Quorn 1801 to 1879

This list was taken from the Quorndon Vestry Meeting minute book. Vestry Meetings were an early form of local government and a precursor to Local Boards and Parish & District Councils. Vestry Meetings were organised as part of the parish duties of the Church and were made up of local people.

Each year the Vestry Meeting would appoint two men as Overseers of the Poor. These would be private local citizens who had other occupations. The position of Overseer of the Poor was created by the 'Act for the Relief of the Poor' of 1597. Duties included setting and collecting the poor rate, distributing the poor relief and supervising the running of the ‘poor house’.

The Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834, basically replaced the position of Overseer of the Poor with Boards of Guardians, although many parishes, including Quorn, continued the position to carry on collecting the poor rate.
