The Norwich Census of the Poor, 1570

This detailed enumeration of people below the poverty line in Norwich, then the second or third city in the land, is a product of the City’s sophisticated approach to poor relief in the Elizabethan period.  Their ages, occupations, diseases and family relationships are all recorded.
