Ancestry adds London, England, Land Tax Records, 1692-1932


From Ancestry's ongoing collaboration with the London Metropolitan Archives, this database contains land tax records for various areas in London from the years 1692 through 1932. They often list both property owners (proprietors) and tenants, placing them in both a parish and a year.

There are some 12.7 million records according to Ancestry's announcement. You can search or browse.

I have written to Ancestry.co.uk asking which districts (boroughs) have information available for which years, whether all available years have been indexed, and whether there are more records to come.
