Item description for Houses and the Hearth Tax: The Later Stuart House and Society by P. S. Barnwell & Malcolm Airs...

The Hearth Tax (1662-89) is the only national listing of people between the medieval poll taxes and the 19th-century census returns. It was a property tax, measured by the number of fireplaces in the dwelling of each eligible household. The data provides valuable insights into national wealth, population and social structure. This study goes further than any before in linking these general questions to a full investigation of changing and diverse forms of domestic building and house use. This book is the first to use the Hearth Tax data to develop a better understanding of vernacular building in the 17th century at a country level - looking at how the buildings of various social classes differed, as well as the regional variation in new building, and differences between town and country. The authors trace developments in fireplace design, introduction of new building materials, correlation between the number of hearths and social status, as well as arrangements for cooking and levels of heating. This book relates physical and documentary evidence to provide the most complete picture yet of late Stuart housing and society in England.
