DescriptionThese volumes contain the registrations of general orders issued by the Trustees as a result of decisions made at their meetings (see COMM.IV above). They contain all orders not belonging to any category for which special registers were kept, and they give a wide picture of the variety of business carried out by the Trustees. They include orders to receivers, auditors, the treasurer, and others, to collect arrears of rents from rectories, to make contracts for tithes, to consider petitions, to make new leases, to view the accounts, to ensure that repairs to churches are carried out, to pay various officials, and to return surveys. They also contain copies of letters written by the Trustees to the other committees working with them. Each entry is under the heading of a place or a person. At first (vols 1-4) the entries are made as a fuller version of the minutes, with the names of the Trustees present when the order was made, the date being that of the meeting. Subsequently the entries are in chronological order of the issue of the document. Volumes 6-7 use the reference numbers to refer to the minute books (see introduction to COMM.IV, p 66)
