NORTH RIDING SESSIONS.
... The Grand Jury having retired, - Mr. BLANSHARD applied to the Court ,on behalf of the townships of Bishopdale, Newbiggin, and Thoralby, for to alter the mode of making the estreat upon them. It appeared that each township maintained its own poor, and had its own overseers, but that they had only one constable, and the county-rate was levied in a joint sum upon the whole of the three townships. The inhabitants had met, and agreed upon the proportions to be paid by each township; namely for every £1000 levied, that Bishopdale should pay £1 5s.; Newbiggin, £1 1s.; Thoralby, £1 12s.7d.; making the total of £3 18s. 7d., - which was now levied in one sum. The application to the Court was, that it would confirm this arrangement, and direct the Clerk of the Peace to prepare the estreat accordingly - Motion granted. ...
