This database contains land tax assessment records for both landowners and occupiers in Warwickshire, England.
What’s in the Records
The land tax was introduced in 1692 and administered on a local level. The tax was assessed yearly and affected both proprietors (owners) and occupants (renters). Tax lists record the name of the proprietor and the occupant, the parish, the amount of the tax, and the year. Because assessments were made yearly, these records can be useful for tracking movements of ancestors.
