Norfolk: Riddlesworth

Land Tax: 1767-1833

This tax was based on the value of property etc. and paid by the owner or (sometimes) occupier according to their agreement. It started in 1692 and valuations are based on those done at this date.

For more information on these records see the Land Tax Assessments page. This is also where examples of the standard headers from 1798 to 1825 and 1826 to 1832 are linked to.


These Norfolk Record Office documents [with the references C/SCD 2/19/1 1767 to C/SCD 2/19/39 1832] are from the Norfolk Quarter Sessions Land Tax Assessments which are arranged by divisions this one being in Guiltcross Hundred.
