Hearth  Tax Return for Warwick Town
1670

A list of houses in Warwick Town - 1670
(Note: the taxable totals are calculated by spreadsheet, and differ from the published values).


From The Town Maps of Warwick 1610 - 1851
A teaching guide prepared by the Warwick CRO

The hearth tax or chimney money was first levied in 1662 and continued until 1689.
2s. a year was charged on each firehearth, but people too poor to be assessed for the
church and poor rates were exempt, as were occupiers of property rented for less than
20s. a year or below 10 in total capital value. Smiths' forges and bakers' ovens were
also sometimes claimed as exempt. This assessment for 1670 is the latest in which the
houses of the poor were included in the same series with those taxed, which makes it
easier to work out the sequence of houses, but since the division is into wards and not
individual streets, this is not often possible.
