The Eureka Partnership (2005) 36pp, A5

The Easthampstead Poor Law Union was formed in 1835 and comprised the parishes of Binfield, Easthampstead, Sandhurst, Warfield and Winkfield with Ascot. This booklet will be of much use to those with ancestors born with in the Easthampstead Union. It has a general introduction to the Poor Law, and a description of how it impacted on the lives of the inmates of these often feared institutions. There is a map of the Easthampstead workhouse layout based on the Tithe Award of 1841, also a map which shows which parishes, were included within the union. The register of births gives the date of birth, whether male or female, names of parents or mother, from which parish the parent was admitted, when and where baptised, in which name baptised and any remarks. The register of deaths gives the date of death, name, age, to what parish chargeable, date of burial and where buried. Both registers are indexed by surname, which makes this booklet very easy to use.
