Beckett's Distribution Poster 1876

This fragile document, currently in the safekeeping of David Joy, is a printed poster copy size (16¼" by 20") listing the recipients of both the Beckett's and the Ibbotson's charities in 1876. It is thought that it used to be displayed in the church porch. It has two columns - the first shows the distribution in 1875, and the second the distribution in 1876. You can read more about these charities here.
