Parochial trusts and charities

These are records of local trusts usually established for poor relief, educational purposes or parish amenities, but occasionally for church maintenance as well.

They are prefixed with the letters PT and a list of collections is available in the online catalogue.

Documents relating to charities and trusts can also be found in the records of the ecclesiastical and civil parishes and in the archives of the city and borough councils.

Accounts returned to the Board of Charity Commissioners are listed under P/CH.

Records of turnpike trusts are in the Norfolk County Council records.
