Worcestershire landowners (1428)
An inquiry was held at Worcester 30 September 1428 into the ownership of the knight's fees from each hundred in the county (but not the city) of Worcester. The jurors based their findings on a previous inquiry a few years earlier, so that for each fee or portion of a fee the name of the previous freeholder is also given. This inquiry was used as the basis for the raising of a subsidy from the laity, taxed at 6s 8d per owner of an entire knight's fee, 1s 8d for a quarter of a knight's fee, smaller fractions being exempt; in addition, the population of each parish was taxed by a formula based on earlier taxations dating back to 1290; but the taxation of the parishes was levied by the parishes themselves, so there is no return of individual householders. The names that appear in these records (the inquiry and the subsequent lay subsidy roll) are thus those of the major freeholders, the jurors, assessors and collectors. The rolls were edited and translated by John Amphlett for the Worcestershire Historical Society and printed in 1902.
