Valuation Rolls

Ancient Valuation Roll. The earliest valuation of the parish I have been able to find is one undated, but which is certainly older than 1799. It was published along with a valuation in 1819 by way of justifying the land valuation at that time. (Ewart Library)

The 1819 Valuation Roll is also reproduced. (Ewart Library)

The Valuation Roll for 1859-60 is the first I have found which lists both both proprietors and Tenant / Occupier. (Ewart Library)
