Scope and content

The givers of charitable benefactions often found it convenient to appoint the corporation of Norwich trustees and estates where this was the case are described in the Charity Commissioners' report of 1893 on the Norwich Municipal Charities. The Charity Commissioners' original report of 1839 on the Charities of Norwich led to the appointment of the trustees of the Norwich Municipal (General) Charities, who inherited many of the evidences of title to these estates.

The documents received from the corporation in many cases complement those described in the 'Muniment Room Handlist' pp. 68-85. Account books for some of the charities and volumes containing copies of charity founders' wills are listed on page 62.
