Caring for the poor 1650-1800: A case study of Ashwell

David says:

During the 17th and 18th centuries parishes were responsible for their poor.  Responses to the plight of the poor took many forms including almshouses, workhouses and pensions.  This talk will illustrate how the Overseers of the Poor in Ashwell responded to the needs of parishioners.
