The above account was submitted to the Easter Vestry meeting held March 30th 1910 but consideration was postponed (Mr Taylor being absent thro illness) .
(1) Because it appeared that Mr Taylor's accounts as Sequestrator to the Benefice while vacant April to October 1909, should be separated from the Churchwardens Accounts.
(2) Because a separate account was submitted by the Rector (Rev C Gordon) of offertories received by him & outgoings paid since Oct 1st 1909 which it was necessary to incorporate, Mr Henry Taylor being ill, Mr Gell as Rector's Churchwarden undertook to arrange the accounts of the Rector & Mr Taylor in ? form after consulting the Rural Dean as to the charges which should be met respectively out of the Rectoral income & the Congregation funds.

Transcribers note.The following appears to relate to events in 1864.
At a Vestry Meeting held in Carsington Oct 13th 1864 it was proposed by Mr Oldfield & seconded by Mr Bowler that for the future 35 shillings a year be paid by Thos Batterley as rent for the Parish House accepted by them.
