Use of language in the catalogue description
The catalogue has retained original historic language that may be offensive, inaccurate or inappropriate. In order to reflect the original context of creation, such historic language has not been edited or replaced. The term ‘inmate’ used on the forms and notices in this file is outdated and was used to refer to residents of the Almshouses. It has therefore been placed in inverted commas by the cataloguer.
