Eyam - Licensed Victuallers 1753-1764

D.R.O. Reference: Q/RA 1/1  1753-1764
Collected and transcribed by Janet Kirk © 2004

Note: 1753-1757 were all single line entries, with the parishes in no particular order within the High Peak Hundred. It appears as though 1757 wasn't fully completed and 1758/9 not done at all. There are a few blank pages in the book before the resumption with 1760. 1760-1764 are entered in separate parishes.
