Hearth Tax Record List
A Listing of all the documents of Hearth Tax or Lay subsidy that I found.
The thirteenth regnal year of Charles II is reckoned from 30 Jan 1661 to 29 Jan 1662, as his reign is dated from the moment of his father’s execution.

Mainly from notes made in the PRO in Chancery Lane on 2 Nov 1988. Their index is in a white foolscap book No 60 on the LHS near desk in the Round Room. Essex is near the back of the book.
These numbers actually have a solidus, not a point but the FW SS will not print this format.
All entries are prefixed E179. It is quite probable that all are now @ Kew.
The documents in the ERO are much less extensive.
