Local Historical Record Books
The St Neot Historians have some account books from past local businesses. One the "Olliver Employment Book" is shown below. We now have digitised some of the St Neot District Nursing Association Book. Others will appear when digitised and catalogued.
St Neot Employment Book 1854 to 1880
This book was given to the St Neot Local Historians by Agnes Olliver. The first image contains some details of the individual entries in the book. Both charts are the same, one in alphabetical order and the other in date order. £1 = £1! 1 shilling = 5p, there were 240 pennies to the £ so 1p = 2.4 old pennies (written as 1d). Imagine adding up money when 12d = 1 shilling, 20 shillings = £1. other coins were farthings 4 = 1d, halfpennies 2 = 1d, so you had 960 farthings or 480 halfpennies to the pound.
