Beckett's Distribution Poster 1876

This fragile document, currently in the safekeeping of David Joy, is a printed poster copy size (16ΒΌ" 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.
