1780 Chebacco Beef Tax

Transcribed by Kurt A. Wilhelm, September 27, 1999

This tax list is transcribed from a booklet located in the T.O.H.P.Burnham Public Library, Essex, Mass.

In the tax lists of 1780, surnames are grouped alphabetically by the first letter of the surname. In the Town Tax, residents are taxed for each poll, on house & land, and on stock & faculty. A poll is a male of 21 years or older, who is eligible to vote. Non-residents who owned land in Chebacco are listed with a property tax, but no poll tax. The tax is expressed in pounds (), shillings (S), and pence (D). The pence column is blank in all cases, and is not included here.

Text not included in the original is enclosed in brackets [ ]. Column totals are not given in the original.
