In 1692 the British government instituted another innovative scheme to increase revenue which came to be known as the land tax. The laws changed several times over the years until the tax was finally repealed in 1963. The tax was administered locally and original records will usually be located at the County Record Office. From 1780 to 1832, a copy of the Land Tax Assessment was placed in the quarter session records. The Clerks of the Peace used the Land Tax Assessments to determine a person’s electorial rights until 1832.
