Four of us are doing a one name study into the origins of our family
We are currently stuck with the following clue in the then local
government records, which exist as the minutes of meetings held in
the vestry of the parish church of St.Mary-at-Finchley.
In a statement on voting rights dated 1st July 1818, BEN COLLOFF,
having paid a rate of sixty pounds, was entitled to 2 votes.
The two films of Finchley parish records have been examined to
extract all the information available, but several births, marriages,
and deaths, remain unrecorded, including Benjamin's (BEN) birth.
Given this clue, where else can we search for more information please?
I feel sure that there must be more information somewhere, even if it
is only over the sixty pounds (what would that be in today's money?)
All hints and tips gratefully received, John COLLOFF.
In case someone else has done this work already I will enclose the
names of the 61 other people listed as being entitled to vote at that time.
I have sorted them into alphabetical order.
