John Steer was a barrister & writer on legal issues best remembered for this detailed survey of the state of parish laws in the early 19th century. In this period the parish was the main institution of rural administration, & parishes were responsible for both ecclesiastical & civil matters. This volume, first published in 1830, contains a clear & comprehensive review of the many laws relating to the responsibilities of the parish. Organising the text according to parish institution, Steer provides a thorough description of legislation which governs all aspects of parish activities, including the parish vestry, Poor Law & church administration, & the duties of Justices of the Peace, with the legal statutes & pertinent legal cases included. This volume was published in multiple editions during the 19th century, & provides a resource for the study of contemporary life
