  • The age structure of Barton's population in 1851
  • Schools, pupils and teachers in Barton, 1850-1860 (including charity schools, sunday schools, educational progress, and more)
  • The Churches and the Chapels

Condition of the book is generally good. The cover has some minor scuffs and blemishes, and some light nibbling along the edges, but the staple spine is intact and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
