THE RESOURCES

Selected land tax and parish rate returns

Please note that I am uncertain about various aspects of these returns; notably whether names refer to owners or occupiers, and whether figures refer to valuations or taxes payable. Unfortunately, the work of transcribing them is so mind-numbing that I'm not in a hurry to investigate (though if anybody's desperate, I do have digital photos of nearly all the surviving local returns from 1762 to 1829)
