The hearth tax and the distribution of population and prosperity in Surrey


Prior to the first national census of 1801 our sources for the study of population consist largely of surrogates whose purpose was originally other than the enumeration of the people. A variety of these sources survive such as the various muster rolls, church visitation records and a range of taxes. More localised demographic information can be gleaned from the parish registers as many small scale studies, and now the country-wide work of the Cambridge Group for the study of Population, have shown.
