Calverley Parish Church Seat Registration

 

In some parish churches, the incumbent and his churchwardens entered upon a system of selling seating in the church, rather like a season ticket. This was illegal practise but despite that, St Wilfrid's succesfully 'leased' it's seating, or where the parishioners themselves provided the seating, charged ground rent. Here are the records of seat registration for the 17th century
