Transcription conventions

A book of Chewton Mendip churchwarden accounts from 1699 to 1759  (Book 1) and two books relating to poor-lawadministration in the 18th century form part of the research used in the production of this website.  The Poor Book 1730-1769 is sometimes called Book 2 whilst a third book covers vestry committee meetings from 1766 to about 1788. Pages from these books are being transcribed and published by volunteers as time allows. The transcriptions aspire to conform to the following conventions written by  Polly Rubery which are published at www.rowberry.org/transcon.pdf
