I noticed this in Family Tree magazine. Thought I would pass it on in case some
haven't seen it.
It is a Manuscript that had been offered for sale/auction.
DEVON, Ide 23 November 1798

John Grave JP orders the overseers of the Parish of Ide, Devon to pay poor relief to the
wife and children of Benjamin STROUD, who has been called into service in the Devon

The Parish of Ide was in turn ordered to be reimbursed by the Parish of Exminster, the
