Cheshire Land Tax Assessments 1786-1832

The Cheshire Land Tax Assessments contain over two million records from about 450 towns. The majority of the records cover the years 1786-1832, but there are some earlier records dating as far back as 1700 and some more recent records dating to 1908 included. The amount of information varies, but the records typically list the property owner, the name of the occupier, and the amount of tax money collected for that year. The Land Tax Assessments are a key resource in terms of pinpointing an ancestor’s location, and forming a picture of their social standing.

This collection has been added to FindMyPast in conjunction with Cheshire Archives as part of the 100 in 100 days project.
