Subsidy, March 1625

National Archives, E179/79/278

The Subsidy was the main form of parliamentary taxation, and was paid by the wealthiest on the basis of the annual value of their land if it was £1 or more, or on goods worth £3. The commissoners for Bucks were Thomas Denton, Edward Tyrrell and John Hampden. The Subsidy recorded here was paid at the normal rate of 4s in the pound. The first figure is the assessment and the second is what they had to pay. The original, which covers all the Cottesloe Hundreds (collected by William Duncombe of Ivinghoe), uses Roman numerals. See also Subsidy 1628.
