Extra-parochial area (England)Edit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
An extra-parochial area
or extra-parochial place
was an area considered to be outside any parish
. They were therefore exempt from payment of any poor or church rate and usually tithe. Extra-parochial areas were gradually either integrated with a neighbouring or surrounding parish, or made separate civil parishes
by the Extra-Parochial Places Act 1857
and the Poor Law Amendment Act 1868
