Historical Background

The land tax was introduced in England in 1692 as a means for raising government revenue and was not done away with until 1963. Land tax records are of value to genealogists because they often list both property owners (proprietors) and tenants, placing them in a parish and a year. Most divisions are based on 1834–1974 boundaries.
