    Master of Harborough Workhouse 
    • Like many parish workhouses, Harborough's was "farmed" by a contractor. In 1793, Joseph Tilley was paid four guineas a week to become master of the workhouse, and to cover all its expenses. His duties included teaching the workhouse children to read. The following year, the contract was renewed at five guineas per week. In 1796-7, payment was based on a formula of 2s.6d per inmate per week at a time when there were generally between 15 and 20 in residence. The payments system reverted to a flat fee of £6 per week in 1798-9. Work done by the inmates included spinning and knitting. The workhouse was rebuilt in around 1801. - The Workhouse.
