The Hampshire Lay Subsidy Rolls 1586

THE HUNDRED OF KINGSCLERE (Kingsclere Division)

The Lay Subsidy was a tax based on the value of lands and possessions and was used to raise money for the Crown to facilitate such things as payment of military forces and building of ships.
The spelling and format of monetary amounts has been left unaltered. For those unfamiliar with pre-decimal English money it will help to know that there were twelve pence (d) in a shilling (s) and twenty shillings in a pound (£).
