DAUID CAMPREDON, ministre.
JACQUE PERCHE, ancien.
ISAAC MINET, ancien.

XIV.

(Accounts from December 15, 1700, to December 29, 1709. Kept by Gregoire Coutelier up to November 9, 1701, after that date by Isaac Minet.)

During this period the accounts are run on consecutively without any balancing, and the only reason of their being balanced when they are, would seem to be the departure of Mr. Campredon on his appointment to the livings of Sibbertswell and Coldridge, on September 30, 1709. Mr. Campredon had been, it will be remembered, rector of Charlton, since January 1700, but had, it would seem, kept on the ministry of the French congregation as well.

1 An overcast of 10s. which Isaac Minet who takes up the accounts from this point does not seem to have discovered.

2Both these names frequently occur in the Guines Registers, but I cannot identify these individuals, possibly Pancouque was the Jean of that name, married in 1682 (Guînes Reg. p. 234).

3 Isaac Minet's sister (Huguenot Family of Minet, p. 45).

The accounts, which used to be balanced at frequent intervals, had now run on for nine years, and not only is this so, but they are balanced on a new plan, which Isaac Minet must be held to have introduced:-the receipts from the weekly offertories and the payments to the poor were entered in the usual way, and totaled at the end of nine years, when the totals are brought forward into what can only be called a summary account, which gives, in addition, the sums received from other sources and expended for other purposes. I call this a summary for the reason that the items are not entered in the order of time in which they were received, but

their totals are taken from some other book in which they must have been first entered. This original record does not exist, but I would suggest that it was Isaac Minet's own business books, in which as we know he certainly made one entry relating to the affairs of the Dover Church (Cf. Registers of the French Church at Dover, p. 19.)

This balance of £7 8s. Otd. stated as it is to be the balance on July 1st, 1701, I cannot account for. The block of accounts we are now dealing with, began on December 15th, 1700, with nothing brought forward, and was not balanced from that time until Nov. 6, 1709. This entry must therefore be a mistake. A difficulty connected with the following entry may perhaps throw some light upon it; in this Isaac Minet credits the Church with interest on what I have termed the reserve fund as from the 29th May, 1701; now this reserve fund had been in his hands certainly from 29th May, 1699, from which date he had undertaken to pay interest on it (see p. 160). This would amount to £3; but nowhere have we found any entry of any such payment. Further, a portion, at any rate, of the reserve had been in Isaac Minet's hands since an earlier period, having been handed to him on August 5, 1694, and I suggest that the sum here called "balance" was really the interest on such part of the reserve as had been deposited with him from 1694 to 1699, and on the £30 which we know it amounted to from 29th May, 1699, to 29th May 1701. It is impossible to, scertain exactly what the actual amount of the reserve was between 1694 and 1699, but as far as can be seen the interest on this, added to the £3, would about account for the £7 88. Old.
