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, Gumbleton and the adjacent cottage are bracketed together: presumably John Oakley is the owner of his own property (worth £10. 4s p.a. rental), the cottage (worth £2. 10s rental) and the property let to Gumbleton for £24 per annum. Total rental value is £36. 14s and the poor rate (at 6d in the pound) is 18s 4½d.

By April 1814, the poor rate had doubled to 1s in the pound. The 21 Apr 1814 book has:

John Oakley          10.4 } 36. 14      1. 6. 9;
