Gloucestershire Hearth Tax
« on: Thursday 30 August 18 17:24 BST (UK) »
I'm sure that in the past I've looked at the records for the Hearth Tax (specifically for Hawkesbury) but I can't remember where.  I thought it was on-line but I can't find it.  Can anyone help me please as I want to revisit it.

Thanks
