Borough Government in Newton’s Grantham – The Hall Book of Grantham, 1649-1662

Regulation of crafts and trades, setting the poor to work, upkeep of streets, the provision of godly ministers and schoolmasters and even the maintenance of the church fabric (notably its famous spire) were all matters of concern for the borough government in mid-seventeenth-century Grantham. The Hall Book (1633-1704), the earliest surviving record of the proceedings of the Alderman’s Court, has much to tell us about the way the Corporation administered the affairs of the town.
