No parish records are known to survive except the registers. Details of poor relief, 1776-1821, which are given below, come from returns made to Parliament and may not always be very accurate. In 1776 a total of £70 was said to have been spent on poor relief. The average for 1783-5 was £36. The cost of relief was given as £140 for 1800-1, and for 1816-17. Between those years it fluctuated, averaging slightly over £100 a year. Only once, in 1815-16, was it higher (£150) than in 1800-1. In 1817-18 it was given as £130, in 1819-20 as £116 and in 1820-1 as £100.
There was a cottage in three tenements in Norton Mandeville which was used as a poor house. It was sold by the Ongar Union in 1837.[4]
