Lay Subsidy Roll of 1524 for Colaton Raleigh Parish


Devon Lay subsidy rolls 1524-7, edited by T L Stoat.

Provided by Ros Hickman, Otterton OPC.

Only the wealthier members of the community were affected, distinction was made between Land and Goods. The collector of taxes could choose between land or goods, whichever was deemed to produce more revenue. People who owned land in different parishes were charged in each parish, so the rolls are not a true list of inhabitants. The amounts paid were stereotyped and are not a real guide to personal wealth.
