The following constitute a non exhaustive list of settlement orders concerning Funnells. They are all extracts noted in ESRO by a professional researcher working on my behalf. We hope they will be useful to you if you wish to locate the original documents which may contain more information. Parish records may also contain further details.
Just as a reminder, settlement orders intervened when two parishes were in dispute over who should provide for a family or to settle issues relating to a family member such as placement as an apprentice.
