DIRECTORY OF DOCUMENTS LODGED WITH SUFFOLK COUNTY ARCHIVE

 

BOX 1 - MINUTE BOOKS – December 1894 – 1967 with some unsigned Minutes from 1969 -72

1894-1923 (Hand written)

1923-1951 (hand written)

1951-1962 (hand written) At the beginning of this book are pasted two telegrams received from Queen Elizabeth’s Private Secretary. The first, dated February 1952 thanks Walberswick Parish Council for a message of condolence to Her Majesty on the death of her father, King George V1.

The second, the date of which is obscured, expresses the gratitude of Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh for Walberswick Parish Council’s message of congratulations on the birth of their son. The absence of a date does not allow identification of whether this is for Prince Charles or one of his brothers.

September 1962- September 1967

2nd October 1967- 1st May 1972* A separate book printed on front 1969-1972 contains what we believe to be the chairman’s own copies of unsigned Minutes dated from 1st December 1969 to 1st May 1972.  Signed Minutes from previous year October 1969 to meeting May 1970 are missing from the Minute book of that period and these copies, although they may have been amended at the next meeting, provide details of Council actions from that time.
