Matthew Davies, Catherine Ferguson, Vanessa Harding, Elizabeth Parkinson and Andrew Wareham (editors), London and Middlesex hearth tax, part I and part 2 (Book review)
This handsome two-part set is the ninth in a series of hearth tax volumes published by the British Record Society, in association with the long-running Centre for Hearth Tax Research at Roehampton University. Other volumes in the same series now published cover hearth tax assessments for the East and West Ridings of Yorkshire, Durham, Westmorland, Warwickshire, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex and Kent, with further counties yet to come. In each case, the editors centre their efforts on the most complete and/or reliable of the unpublished extant hearth tax assessments, which at present range in date from 1666 to 1674, while the tax was levied between 1662 and 1689.
