Notes

  • In other rate documents the following alternative spellings have been seen which appear to refer to the same people/places:-
    Branthwit/Branthwaite, Burrows/Burroughs, Dickens/Diggens, Haws/Hawes, Scurll/Scirl
  • Edmund Burr and Dicken Esqr had paid 15*Yearly rate so that no more tax was payable on the two blocks of land.
  • The quality of parts of the fiche is poor.
  • The Christian Name "Robert" was written by the Assessor as "Robart".
  • In the "Not Exon" columns the amount of the "Sums Assessed" appears to be correct but based on half of the amount of the Rent?
