Settlement examination: William Munford, labourer (aged 34 or 35) of Horsham St Faith

Born in Felthorpe where his father had his settlement. About 13 or 14 years ago he contracted with James Fromow of Horsham St Faith to serve him as a Teamer-man for a year for 7s. to be paid weekly and £7 to be paid at the end of the year. A fortnight after he left he entered the service of Thomas Spinks, farmer, of Swannington as a weekly labourer in husbandry. Four days before the end of his period of service Spinks asked William if he would work for him for a year driving his team on a farm he occupied at Booton. William agreed - the wage was to be £8 and he was to lodge in the house at Booton. Spinks then asked if William would look after the horses on the farm at Swannington for the 4 days left to Michaelmas. He agreed and was boarded in the house. William then went to Booton and worked there for the next year when, 3 days before Michaelmas, Spinks asked if he would stay for another year but he declined as he wanted a better place. Spinks said he would pay William off but that he would not gain a settlement in the parish. William was paid £8 less 3s. for the 3 days to go to Michaelmas and 9s. for the 4 days he worked at Swannington.

Martha moved into Norwich with the family and continued to serve the Faulkes for half a quarter year when Mrs Faulkes asked her to stay for another half quarter and Mrs Faulkes mother told Martha that she would pay her half a crown in additon to the £2 for the year. Martha agreed and when she left at the end of the half quarter she received 10 shillings from Mrs Faulkes and one shilling from Mrs Faulkes mother 'in room of the half crown which she had promised her'.
