1 Apr 1870 Abstract of the General Establishment of Oudh Province with 'A' forms 1-30 and 31-55
The Use of Abstracts: the costs of each office were listed on a Detailed Statement of Salaries and Establishment (often called Form 'A') and totalled at the foot of the form. These were then transferred to a form and annotated as No.(of 'A' form), Office and Amount. The total cost of the Establishment was then derived by adding the amounts of all the 'A' forms - of interest to the Accountant-Gen'l but of no interest to family history researchers. However, if one knows that a particular ancestor worked in a particular office, one can use the 'A' form number of that office and so find out the names and details of all who worked at that office. Hence if we wanted to locate details of a Mr Harrington who worked in the General Establishment of Oudh and specifically for the Chief Commissioner of Oudh we could look down the abstract and note that No 1, Office of the Commissioner of Oudh is the likely listing. Form 'A' No.1 lists:-
H B Harrington Esquire MA., the Acting Secretary along with details of his Appt and Salary.( See also Vol 211, 1 May 1879)
