Return to Subsidy List  

This is a bundle of sixteen documents relating to several taxes from different reigns.  It has therefore been divided into parts accordingly.  The present document is part five, a group of three different styles of certificate of residence, all relating to the first collection of the subsidy granted to Elizabeth I in 1563.  The first gives the assessment for three named members of the Royal Chamber, and also their assessment in the parish of St Saviour, presumably in Southwark.  The second simply give the assessment for one named individual in the Royal Chamber, and the third is an extract from the Queen's Remembrancer's records, to show that two named inviduals were taxed in the Royal Household.  None are dated, but they may have been created at approximately the date of the first collection in 1563.  All are in fair condition and are legible.  Further details
