Metfield Parish and Poor in the Late Eighteenth Century
- By: Victor Peskett
- Narrated by: Kate Shrewsday
- Length: 44 mins
Victor Peskett reveals in this book the workings of the Guardians of the Poor in Metfield, Suffolk, a village committee with powers to levy a charge on the community and, after close examination, disperse funds to support the poor, according to their needs and their means. Peskett's painstaking research into the minutes of the Guardians' meetings has uncovered not the dry transactions of a local administrative committee, but an illumination of the past two short centuries ago.
