1332 Lay Subsidy

This tax, a lay subsidy of movables (domestic animals, grain, household goods and possessions but excluding military equipment, tools of trade, jewels and clothing), was levied at one-fifteenth, or 6.67%, of the value of the movables.

The entries have been extracted from the Buckinghamshire Record Society‘s publication no. 14 Early Taxation Returns: Taxation of Personal Property in 1332 and Later.

All names below are as they appear in the original text – note that some are occupational surnames, eg Thomas le smyth, or residential surnames, eg Lawrence atte brok. The total amount collected from Wing was £7 3s 6d, and the subtaxers tasked with making the valuation were William son of Thomas de Walda and William son of John de Walda. By way of comparison, in 1336 the total was £8 3s 6d, and by 1446 it was £6 19s 1/2d (details for these later years have not survived).
