Historic Personal Taxes in the 18th Century

Various personal taxes were raised at different times from 1748. There were separate schedules for each tax but not all records survive. This page has transcripts of the schedules for Forgan parish from 1748 to 1798. The records are held by the National Records of Scotland, ref. E326 and the originals are online at ScotlandsPlaces, which has an overview of the records and transcripts of some of the documents. Interpreting old documents can produce different results.

From 1798 taxes were payable to a single consolidated fund. These were entered on a single schedule, which included houses and windows, inhabited houses, male servants, carriages, riding and carriage horses, horses used in husbandry and trade and mules, and dogs. The consolidated schedules survive for the year 5th April 1798 to 5th April 1799 only.

All records sorted by name,   all records sorted by date

There are no Poll Tax records for Forgan, and no Shop Tax records for Fife at all. The Hearth Tax and some Land Tax records are listed on other pages.

A note on the Window Tax - initially the rolls list properties with 10 or more windows but from 1762 onwards they list those with 8 or more windows and from October 1766 they list those with 7 or more. The tax was eventually repealed in 1851.
