Death Duties 1796-1903

Use your browser's back button to return to Records Page

Death Duties were payable on estates over a certain value and the Death Duty Registers contain details of estates investigated; not necessarily all actually paid duty.

Unfortunately these records are extremely difficult to interpret and use. I have looked at them but ran out of time before I could obtain anything useful.

Where there was no abode stated I have included the address given for the executor/administrator.
