Land Tax Transcription now available

We have just uploaded a transcript of the 1781 land tax returns for Buckland Brewer to the website. This lists proprietors and occupiers of properties in the parish that had land attached; small cottages with only a garden plot do not usually appear. We hope to add transcripts of more returns in the future.
