Papworth Everard help
« on: Friday 13 July 18 17:59 BST (UK) »
Hello,

Huntingdonshire Archives contacted me today about Timothy Burton of Great Gransden, and they found a 'settlement paper' from 1734 that declared that Timothy and Ann Burton were 'legally settled in Papworth Everard' but 'addressed to Great Gransden'. The lady speculated that Timothy may have lived in Papworth Everard before he married in Great Gransden in 1726. However, she said that the couple appear to have never lived in Papworth Everard. Can anyone find a christening or any record of Timothy from Papworth Everard?

I'd appreciate any help!

I read that as meaning: "This is a document that is addressed to Gt Gransden, that the postman delivered at Gt Gransden.  This document confirms that Timothy and his wife are legally settled in Papworth Everard".

So it looks, to me, as if Tim and Anne are sitting in Gt Gransden either asking to be settled, or because the overseers think they might be a problem if they become chargeable... so Timothy and Anne had a meeting and Timothy said "I'm legally settled in Papworth", so Gt Gransden wrote to Papworth for confirmation and got a reply ... the reply being addressed to Gt Gransden.

I hope what I mean is clear :)

The document is dated 24 April 1734.
