The Examination of Mary Maccaness now in the Parish of Rushden touching her last legal Settlement taken before us two of his Majesty’s Justices of the Peace in and for the said County the first Day of March 1781.

From Michaelmas 1778 to the Michaelmas following which time she served at Puddington aforesaid since which time she has done nothing to acquire a settlement in any other place but that as she believes her legal settlement is at Puddington aforesaid and further saith not.
