Hearth Tax - 1674

The hearth tax consisted of a half-yearly payment of one shilling for each hearth in the occupation of each person whose house was worth more than 20s a year, and who was a local ratepayer of church and poor rates. It was introduced at a time of serious fiscal emergency by Charles II. The surviving hearth tax returns and assessments of 1662-1674 relate to the levy of two shillings on every hearth: as such, they are one of the obvious sources for family, local and social history. The hearth tax actually continued until 1688, but only the assessments for 1662-1666 and 1669-1674 were delivered into the Exchequer. Outside these periods, the collection of the tax was 'farmed out' to private tax collectors who paid a fixed sum to the government in return for the privilege of collecting the tax. They were not required to send their assessments into the Exchequer"
