Findmypast adds Devon, Plymouth Plague Rate 1626-1629

Even if there are only 659 entries in this index collection of Devon, Plymouth Plague Rate 1626-1629 such early records are gold for the right person. Included are names and wards of those who were taxed to help with the cost of relief of the plague-stricken. The records show additional information about residents such as if they refused to pay, left the area or were deceased.

The index was created from original records across three wards of Plymouth: Looe Street, Venners and Vintry held by the Plymouth & West Devon Record Office.
