1899 Oct 25th School Accommodation at Portishead.

A communication was received from the managers of the British Schools, Portishead, saying that they were prepared to receive ten of the children whom the Guardians were going to place in cottage homes at Portishead. The Rector  of Portishead also wrote that the Church of England Schools managers had no objection to the admission of the children and that they would endeavour to provide for the children as good an education as the other children received. The managers of the St. Barnabas School also wrote that they had no objection to receiving the children.

1892 Sep 24. Oveerseers Summoned.
George Court and Theodore H English, overseers for the parish of Clapton, were summoned by the Bedminster Board of Guardians for neglecting to comply with an order from the Guardians to pay their treasurer, Mr W H Harford, the sum of £23 on August the 11th. The defendants admitted the receipt of the precept. Mr English explained to the court that the overseers employed Mr Dawes as their assistant. They had received no notice that the money had not been paid and were not aware that it was due. The summons was adjourned for a fortnight upon the understanding that the money would be paid into the treasurer’s hands by October 1st.
Joseph Mitchell and John Sprigg, overseers for the parish of Weston in Gordano, were similarly summoned for the non-payment of their contributions, £9 in July and £8 in August. In this case Mr Dawes was also the assistant overseer, and the summonses were similarly dealt with.
