This document is an insurance policy taken out by Seth Wallis of New Buckenham in 1797 and countersigned by Thomas Bignold. The Norwich Union Society for Insuring of Buildings, Goods, Merchandises & Effects from Loss by Fire was founded by Thomas Bignold in that same year. The company was a mutual enterprise, owned by its policyholders, who not only pooled their premiums to pay out in the event of a claim, but also received a share of the company’s profits. Norwich Union was one of the principal companies that merged to create Aviva.
