Tithe Apportionment Documents

Each tithe map has associated pages, sometimes known as schedules, outlining how much tithe the people had to pay, i.e. how tithe duties were apportioned. These documents are essentially tables listing who lived in each district, the land they owned, and how much they had to pay. Fortunately most include the names of fields, their size, the the use made of them, and a numeric reference to a location on the map. This information is extremely valuable as a historical source.

Volunteers can help transcribe these documents online. This will allow us to connect specific information about each field to a particular place on the map.
