YORKSHIRE:
Some of the Subsidy Rolls (Poll Tax) for the year 1379


INTRODUCTION

The following information was transcribed from The Yorkshire Archaeological and Topographical Journals (all pre 1900). The data is "signed" J.G. 8th February, 1879.
In the journals the data is given wapentake by wapentake, however this format makes very large files when placed on the World Wide Web, and so I have split the data into places, and then re-combined the data into parishes so that it can be accessed from the relevant Genuki parish pages eventually. Most of the information concerns the West Riding, however there is also most of the Ainsty wapentake and Howdenshire in the East Riding. The only information for the North Riding is for Humburton in Kirby Hill parish in the West Riding.
The headings of each of the sections are given below, along with a list of the parishes for which there is data.

When I first placed these files on the Genuki site, there were quite a lot of places with names that I couldn't identify. These have been identified with the help of Yvonne Clarke, Carolyn Fenwick and members of the Yorksgen mailing list.

Summa totalis cxxix.li. xvj.d.

*(Membrane 46b, column 3.)
(This Total is evidently for Claro Wapentake and the Ainsty combined. For neither of them are there separate totals written on the Roll; but the different totals in Claro Wapentake make up 102l. 5s. 6d. and those for the Ainsty 26l. 15s. l0d., which is agreeable to the above sum for the two added together.)
