The Tithe Commission appoints Henry Fleming Assistant Tithe Commissioner for special purposes

1848

In late 1848, this announcement appeared.



From The Jurist, Vol. 11, Part 2

Henry was apparently only with the Tithe Commission for a short time and then began work for the Poor Law Board. It's also possible the two appointments overlapped. I know very little about the Tithe Commission, but one place where they appear to have had an interest in common with the Poor Law Commission and then the Poor Law Board was in the mapping of the parishes of England.
