Summary: Account book of the Constable of the Parish of Hawsker-Cum-Satinsacre from 1786 to 1823, listing the amounts owed and the amounts paid by the citizens of the parish. The volume also includes a loose leaf with the accounts from 1767. It would appear that the office of Constable (spelled variously “Conestbel,” “Constuble,” “Constable,” etc.) was a yearly office, as the name that accompanies the title is different each year.
Note: Bound in contemporary full dark-stained vellum over paper boards ; manuscript title(?) on front cover, though now almost completely illegible ; text written in multiple neat English cursive hands. In addition to a loose leaf containing the accounts of 1767, several other small contemporary scraps of paper are present in the manuscript. History of Brandeis’s acquisition of the volume unknown ; possibly the gift of Philip D. Sang.
