CONTEXT

Administrative and biographical history: Until the Local Government Act 1894 civil administration at the parish level was supervised through the vestry meetings. The parish was administered by a number of officials including an overseer of the poor. The overseer had responsibility for administering the Poor Law and his duties included giving out poor relief, assessing the entitlement of individuals to settle in the parish and arranging the removal of undesirables to their own parish. The overseer also collected the poor rates to fund his work. The parish of Penderyn in Brecknockshire, now in Powys was part of the Merthyr Tydfil Poor Law Union from 1836.
