KIRKBY STEPHEN, WESTMORLAND -

HEARTH TAX LISTS, 1669-1672



The following Notes and Hearth Tax Lists, have been extracted from LDS Microfilm, 874126. These lists are of an earlier date than those included on the "Edenlinks" site.

The Tax on Hearths in England was revived in 1662. By this Tax the King received annually 2s upon every hearth in all houses paying Church or Poor Rates. The Statute was amended in the following year to relieve occupiers of houses under the value of 20 shillings per annum, or not occupying lands of that value, or not possessing goods worth 10. Such could gain exemption on obtaining a certificate to that effect.
1669-1672 Hearth Tax Roll, Lay Subsidy, 195 n. 73.
