The variation in the amount given to the church offertory over the weeks must indicate the absence of some wealthier inhabitants ...
Meanwhile, the existence of the Coal & Blanket Club reminds us that there were "very poor" people living in the village ...

COAL AND BLANKET CLUBMrs Brigham will be at the School House on the second Wednesday in April, the 13th, to receive Coal Club subscriptions.
As the Coal Club is for the benefit of the very poor, the Committee consider that they only should benefit by the bonus. At the same time, if those who are better off and in good employment like to bring small sums to Mrs Brigham, she is quite willing to take charge of the money, returning it to them at the appointed time without any addition.
If any prefer Blankets or Clothing, she will give a ticket on one of the shops for either one or the other.
