Fifteenth & Tenth Tax Granted to Elizabeth 1 in 1566

Dr Alan Wilcockson

Below is a record of the second collection of the 1/15th & 1/10th Tax which took place on the 1st November 1568. The tax itself was granted to Queen Elizabeth I in 1566 and the amount to be paid was based on the believed movable wealth of that parish. As such it gives an idea of the wealth of Crich parish compared to other Morleyston wapentake parishes.

In transcribing the names of each parish I have used the modern names given in the National Archives sheet on this collection even if they differed from the actual written text.

This fragment (Ref No. E176/94/406 part 7), held at the National Archives, is part of the particulars of account of the collector of the second moiety of the fifteenth and tenth granted to Queen Elizabeth 1 in 1566 for Morleyston wapentake. A comparison with other documents shows that these particulars originally also included Litchurch and Scarsdale wapentakes.
