Bromsgrove Land Tax 1831
Land Tax Returns give the owner and occupier of a property and the sum assessed. The later returns also give a brief description of the property. This sums assessed did not change year to year, so where a sequence of Land Tax Returns survives, it is possible to trace the title to a property from 1780-1832. The assessments are usually in walking order of the parish, but this sequence was gradually disturbed as separate lists were kept of owners who had made a one-off payment to redeem their Land Tax.

The Bromsgrove Land Tax Returns of 1810 are transcribed here as far as they relate to the Town Yield. (W.R.O. B.A. BA 823/15) The assessors appear to have commenced at the corner of the High Street and Stratford Road and gone along the east side of the High Street and Worcester Street and returned along the west side of those streets, also taking in Hanover Street and St John's Street.
