POOR HOUSE and WORK HOUSE
Charlton Mackrell used to have a Poor House, opposite the church.
The Langport Union Work House was in High Ham parish, just south of the main road into Langport. Further information on both is available here.
TRADE DIRECTORIES, ABSENT VOTERS LISTS and ELECTORAL ROLLS
These are other sources of information about the villages and their people.
We can provide information from copies held in the Historical Society's archive
in response to specific requests and will include details on this website later.
Nominations for the first Parish Council were received at a Parish meeting chaired by Rev F A Brymer and held at Charlton Mackrell School on Tuesday 4th December 1894.
BIGGS, Sidney - nomination withdrawn
EDWARDS, John ) Nomination papers declared invalid due to informality
BUT Mr Atyeo demanded a poll and the Chairman declared the meeting closed.
SHOPPING in THE CHARLTONS
Until recently we had 2 pubs plus 2 shops and a garage, but now there is only one shop (the Post Office in Charlton Adam) and no garage. Regrettably, in summer 2008 the historic "Greyhound Inn" in Charlton Mackrell also closed, so there is now only one pub - the "Fox & Hounds" in Adam. Some information about the "Greyhound Inn", now called Alehouse Lodge, is available to download from the 'Houses' page.
