John Oakley 10.4 } 34.4 17 1½ for Winter 24 }The 27 Aug 1807 book has 'For Winter' struck through and 'For Gumbleton' written in. The remainder of the year (10 Sep, 28 Oct, 5 Nov, 3 Dec) has:
John Oakley 10.4 } 34.4 17 1½ for Gumbleton 24 }The rate was levied on property owners, but tenants are also usually shown in the records. The rate was 6d in the pound, charged on the rental value of the property. John Oakley and Gumbleton are bracketed together: presumably John Oakley is the owner of his own property (worth £10. 4s p.a. rental) and that let to Gumbleton for £24 per annum. Total rental value is £34. 4s and the poor rate (at 6d in the pound) is 17s 1½d.
