"Parish Board" Could be a reference to the Church courts, that often dealt with moral matters and cases of sexual impropriety and are so rich in wicked stories that they earned the nickname 'bawdy courts'. They had fallen out of use by 1850s . Alternatively it could be a reference to the Boards of Guardians set up to administer the Poor Law Amendment Act 1834
