This description is applied to the miscellaneous collection of records that were kept on the church premises. I think it was in the C16th. that churches were obliged to provide a lockable chest for the storage of records, and many of these still survive. The sort of records you would have found there were churchwarden's accounts, vestry minutes, poor law records, sexton's records (grave registers and churchyard plans), tithe and rate books, apprentiship indentures and all sorts of other stuff that no one threw away. The majority of this is now preserved at the CRO but, regretably, some has been lost or ended up in private hands.
At present there are some records included here which are not strictly parish chest, but this is a suitable parking place until a better page is written.
