Extract from the 1691 Hearth Tax Records for the
Parishes of Monikie and Lundie, Scotland

Please read my general notes first.


 

Particular notes for this extract from - Hearth Tax Records 1690-95 microfilm LDS 559524

The Parishes of Lundie and Monikie April 1691.  The total number of hearths in the parish of Monikie was 238

As so many surnames had the same forename, I only indicate the occurrence of the forename once.  This being a transcript from a microfilm copy, the results are only as good as my interpretation of the handwriting of 1691.  There is not much information contained in the 3 pages for Monikie.  A usual entry would read as:

There are a few single entries such as:

All other entries have 2 to 5 names listed together.

Please refer to the information to be found on the fact sheet HEARTH TAX 1691-1695 (E69) from the National Archive of Scotland, or at - htttp://www.nas.gov.uk/miniframe/fact_sheet/taxation.pdf  As this is link is to a page in PDF format - which needs a special reader - reproduced below is an extract to assist you.

TAXATION

Until the 17th century taxation was regarded as an extraordinary source of revenue levied for specific purposes such as the defence of the realm, the kingís marriage or the knighting of his eldest son.  Originally taxation fell on land and property with the barons, the burghs and the church sharing the burden.  Details of late medieval taxation can be found in exchequer records but there are no actual accounts until James VIís reign. In the 17th century the government sought to broaden the tax base.

Various early attempts at taxation can be found in taxation records in the Exchequer records (E59-70).

HEARTH TAX 1691-1695 (E69)

In 1690 Parliament granted a tax of 14 shillings on every hearth in the kingdom payable by both landowners and tenants to raise money for the army. Only hospitals and the poor living on charity from the parish were exempt.  There were huge difficulties in collecting the tax, particularly in highland or remote areas.  Collection dragged on for several years until August 1694 when a proclamation called for all hearth lists to be sent to the treasury before the 1 October.

As a source, the hearth lists must be used with caution.  The records are generally arranged by county and parish and may give the number of hearths in the parish, the names of the occupiers or owners of the houses and the number and names of exempt poor.  However some lists, such as those for parishes in Glasgow, give only the total number of hearths and money collected, while those for Inverness-shire give the total number of hearths headed by the name of the heritor and the names of the individual poor.  The standard of accuracy also varies from list to list.

Many lists have not survived.  There are none for any of the Orkney and Caithness parishes.  Some hearth books were never handed in to the Exchequer and a few survive among collections of private papers.  The Leven and Melville papers (GD26/7/300-391) contain lists for parishes in Dumfriesshire, Fife, Edinburgh, and Shetland. Lists for parishes in Ross-shire are in the Cromartie papers (GD305/1/164).
