    The vestry minutes record meetings of the parish vestry to deal with such issues as church fabric, lands, upkeep, annual elections, and poor relief. No vestry minutes survive between 1628 and 1670 but there remains an earlier book running from July 1557 to March 1581/2. Normalized extracts for both vestry books have been provided by Alan H. Nelson, 'The Parish of St Saviour, Southwark'.

    For an abstract of the document and details of its transcription history, see the related EMLoT event record.
