Please enjoy these records containing information I have extracted over the years, and be sure to cite me as your source: Lane R. Ellis, www.DerbyshireGenealogist.com.

Land tax assessment records in England typically show the name of the proprietors, the names of the occupiers, sometimes a name or description of estates or properties, and the sums assessed and exonerated or sums assessed and non exonerated. More information on these valuable records can be found at the Devon County Council Web site.
