NORTHOWRAM: Northowram Hearth Tax, 1665.

Northowram Hearth Tax, 1665.

Hearth Tax, Northowram 1665.

The Hearth tax, or Hearth money, was a tax levied on hearths or fires in every dwelling house, at the rate of two shillings [in today's money 10p] per hearth or stove. It was established by William the Conqueror, later receiving parliamentary sanction in the reign of Charles II and was abolished under William and Mary. Those who were excused from paying the tax were from the poorer classes, dwelling in more humble cottages. The following is an index of those who paid [and the number of fires], and those who were excused, in the Township of Northowram. The total number of hearths or stoves is 387, an average of just over 3 per household, and there were 157 persons excused.
