Linkinhorne Parish

 Hearth Tax  1662/1664

 

The Hearth Tax was an attempt to tax people according to their wealth, working on the principle that the wealthier they were the more hearth’s they would have in their home. The tax and variants were in existence for several decades but records for Linkinhorne only exist for 1662 and 1664. It was often found that people had stopped up hearths after the first taxation in order to reduce their tax.  As all the names have been put in alphabetical order this is not an exact transcription. Notes that refer to the differences between the two collections are only mentioned where they involve named people.
