Key projects involving the Centre for Hearth Tax Research

The British Academy Hearth Tax Project

The Centre is working to transcribe, analyse and publish the fullest surviving return, or set of returns where necessary, for every county in England where a county return has not already been published and/or analysed. This research is then published through the British Record Society Hearth Tax Series of hard-copy volumes.
