Hebden 1849 Land Tax Assessment

Taxes on land date back to the Norman Conquest, but it was made an annual obligation in 1798. It was payable by land owners according to the value of their land as of 1692. This list of the Hebden 1849 Land Tax Assessment is not necessarily a complete list of land owners, as since 1798 it had become possible to buy out the obligation by paying 15 years rent as a lump sum ("Redeemed, and exonerated"), and properties with a value of less than £1 (at 1692 values!) were exempt.
