Registry of Gamekeepers 1797 - 1814

 

From 1784 to 1807 all persons qualified to kill or sell game, including the manorial gamekeepers, registered with the Clerk of the Peace who issued a licence for which they paid a fee.

 

Normally it was the Lord of the Manor who applied for the licence by appointing a gamekeeper.

A Reverend Atkinson had a licence to kill game, was he so badly off, he had to go out and bag himself a rabbit or a brace of pheasants?
