This is a series of finding aids for the genealogist and local historian. Each volume contains an index to the people listed as owners or occupiers of land in the tithe apportionments, which were drawn up in the early 1840’s.
The apportionments, and the maps that they accompany, detail every field, barn and dwelling in the parish which were liable to tithe rent charges. In some parishes, the lists also include properties that were exempt from tithes.
The publications in this series provide a pointer to the parishes where individuals owned or occupied property.
Tithes were applicable to all classes of people, so that the names included in the index cover all types - agricultural labourers, artisans, farmers, professional people and landed gentry. Because of this broad coverage, the tithes are a very useful way to locate families in the early part of the 1840’s.
