Botton Hearth Tax Returns 1664, 1666 and 1673

Introduction

The hearth tax was levied between 1662 and 1689 on each householder according to the number of hearths in his/her occupation. The Hearth Tax Online website has a brief history of the tax, and of what we can learn from Hearth Tax returns; and links to more detailed considerations of both topics.

The information in the lists below has been transcribed and collated from original documents held at the Lancashire Record Office in Preston. Click here to see an example of an original Hearth Tax return from The National Archives website.
