Tetbury Hearth Tax

Hearth Tax Notes

'Gloucester Village Populations' by Alicia C Percival, 1972, has for Shipton Moyne, Communicants in 1551 - 600, in 1603 - 600, in 1676 - 190, and in 1650 there are 500 families. If each house has an average of 2 adults, the Hearth figures of 240 houses appears to be out of step with Percival's 1676 figures

A=1660 or 1662 Lists, B=E 178 247/13, for 1671,
C=E 178 247/14, D=E 178 116/544 page 84 (Overseers list) both for 1672
628 entries transcribed, which appear to belong to 411 individuals
(118 in A-G, 148 in H-P, and 145 in R-Z) in 240 houses.
108 have Discharge Certificates 1672, 131 are on Overseers list D in 1672, 59 Discharged by Certificate in 1671
Houses with 1 hearth - 13 in 1664, 23 in 1671 and 22 in 1672
Houses with 2 hearths - 15 in 1664, 41 in 1671 and 33 in 1672
Houses with 3 hearths - 6 in 1664, 10 in 1671 and 22 in 1672
Houses with 4 hearths - 3 in 1664, 15 in 1671 and 15 in 1672
Houses with 5 hearths - 1 in 1664, 5 in 1671 and 5 in 1672
Houses with 6 hearths - John Savage in 1671
Houses with 7 hearths - 1 in 1664, 5 in 1671 and 5 in 1672
Houses with 8 hearths - Henry Chapman and William Savage in 1671 and 1672
Houses with 9 hearths - Mr Gastrell in 1671 and 1672
Houses with 10 hearths - Christopher Harris in 1671 and 1672

Tetbury had about 107 houses rated to pay the tax, and 131 or more which were exempt. 315 hearths were counted (15 pounds 15 shillings a half year), and each year the collector recorded a different amount of money paid - adding up seems a difficult skill, getting the money was not easy.
