Sawley Land Tax Assessments
« on: Monday 21 January 19 10:47 GMT (UK) »
In 2010 I visited the DRO and had a wonderful time transcribing all my ancestral SMEDLEY occurances in the Land Tax Assessments from 1780 to 1832.

I have re-visited my records recently and find I'm missing an interesting (to me) bit of data. I would like to know the date of the assessments taken in 1789 and 1790. I have a potentially important ancestor William SMEDLEY who was in the 1789 assessment but not the 1790. I suspect he died but there are annoying gaps in the Sawley PR burials for that period.

If any kind soul is visiting the DRO I would be really thankfull if you could look up this info. It is to be found on Film M203.

Thank you
