Prepared by Michael Steer

Lay Subsidy was a tax levied on lay people on their movable property rather than land. The tax was usually raised as and when needed to fund a particular venture, for example, a military campaign. The poor were exempt from the tax as was clerical property. The clergy were subject to a separate clerical subsidy. The tax was also known as Tenths and Fifteenths. The records consist of lists compiled by the assessors of those eligible to pay. Earliest documents were written in Latin. Roman Catholics and other nonconformists were forced to pay double rates.
