Tithes were originally paid as 1/10th of the produce of the land (crops, eggs, cattle, timber, fishing, etc.) to the rector, as alms and as payment for his services. They were often stored in a tithe barn attached to the parish. At the dissolution of the monasteries some of the land passed out of church ownership, and tithes were then paid to private landlords. Inclosure Acts made further modifications, either abolishing the payments entirely or replacing them with monetary payments. By the time of the Tithe Commutation Act, 1836, there was considerable discontent over tithe payment. The Act requirements replaced the ancient payment system of payment in kind with monetary payments. It is noted for the tithe maps needed for the valuation process.
