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.

Houses with 2 hearths - 15 in 1664, 41 in 1671 and 33 in 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.
