High Peak Hearth Tax

The Hearth Tax is a useful source because it lists the names of some of the householders living in a given place at that time. It does not list all people, or even all heads of household, but can give some idea of common surnames in a locality,

The Derbyshire Record Society produced a book in 1982 called "Derbyshire Hearth Tax Assessments 1662-70" edited by David Edwards which, although out of print, can be found in some reference libraries. David Edwards kindly gave permission for Derbyshire GENUKI to reproduce some of his work.

Hearth Tax transcription for a number of individual places available on a number of different websites. Marjorie Ward has many on her NW Derbyshire sources site and Rosemary Lockie has others on her village pages; the rest I intend to add to my site as time allows.
