Subsidy, June 1628

National Archives, E179/80/286

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. Recusants, i.e. Catholics, paid a higher rate. The Subsidy recorded here was part of five Subsidies voted to Charles I in June 1628, and was a double one, i.e. 8s in the pound instead of 4s. Payment was supposed to be made by 10 July. The first figure is the assessment and the second is what they actually had to pay. The original, which covers all the Cottesloe Hundreds, uses Roman numerals. After collecting this Subsidy, Charles I ruled without Parliament until 1640.
