Tithe Applottments
« on: Tuesday 06 March 18 16:26 GMT (UK) »
I have been looking at church Of Ireland Vestry Minutes and have seen a couple of entries "applottments  agreed" followed by  short list of names. Is this how the amount payable was calculated using the area of a "plot"? or has the word applottment  another meaning.The list of names is short so it's not those being charged. I have also looked at the actual Tithe records at PRONI. Could the list possibly refer to the collectors of the Tithes. Can anyone tell me more about the Tithes and who actually accessed and then collected them.I know the money was for the upkeep of the Church Of Ireland, the established church.

Thanks for this. I have looked at this website but didn't read the introduction. I suppose applottment is an old word.
