Scope and content

These extract from the Vestry meetings are both interesting and in places I think very funny; it makes you realise there's nothing new under the sun where politics is concerned. With the establish of Parish Councils the Vestries lost much of their powers. 1893 was the last year in which the Bampton Vestry elected surveyors and overseers. Henceforth it elected only Churchwardens and its business consisted wholly of church matters. Well worth taking the time to read.
