STAPLE FITZPAINE

HEARTH TAX

1664-1665

 (transcribed by Tanya Melhuish)
 

In 1664 Charles II declared to exact a tax of two shillings on every Hearth. This tax was very unpopular, but was not abolished till the reign of William and Mary.

Exemption from Hearth Tax was given to those whose houses were not of greater value of 20 Shillings per annum and whose goods were not of greater value than ten pounds per annum, and the said houses had not above two chimneys
