Summary of Tithe Apportionments for the Parish of Marston Bigot

 

The following is transcribed from the Tithe Apportionments (IR 29/30/281) at The National Archives, Kew.

The summary below shows the aggregate area of land held by each tenant under each landowner and the corresponding rent-charge payable to the Rector. The valuation was carried out by Thomas DAVIS Jnr of Warminster and the summary was signed by the Tithe Commissioners 5 Dec 1840.
