Poll Tax

The "Lay Subsidy" or Poll Tax of 1379 was granted by the spring parliament of the twelve year old king Richard II.

Unlike the poll tax of Edward III two years earlier, which was a tax of 4d a head on all the population over twelve, this tax was graded from 10 marks for the Duke of Lancaster, down to 4d for a labouring man.

Hearth Tax

The Hearth Tax was introduced in England and Wales by parliament to support the Royal Household of King Charles II in 1662, following the restoration of the monarchy in 1660. The original Act of Parliament was revised in 1663 and 1664, and collection continued until the tax was repealed by William and Mary in 1689.

Each liable householder was to pay one shilling for each hearth within their property for each collection of the tax. The Tax was to be paid twice annually:-

        1.  29th September,. Michaelmas.

        2.  25th March, Lady Day.

With payment starting at Michaelmas 1662.
