This  – time it is the turn of Land Tax Records for a variety of areas in London, the time period is 1692 – 1932.

The tax was introduced in England in 1692 and monies went into the government coffers, it wasn’t until 1963 that it was abolished. The records list both property owners and also tenants it also records which parish the property was situated in. A set of records which are often under used by family historians.

The records were compiled as part of what became known as the Domesday Survey, the government at the time wanted to re-distribute wealth  through the assessment of land values. Nice idea, but obviously didn’t work that well!!!
