Tithe Award

South Petherton Tithe Apportionment

Following the Tithe Commutation Act 1836 landowners and occupiers were able to pay tithes in cash and schedules of the owners and occupiers were drawn up and their land holdings marked on detailed maps (“Tithe Maps”).  This enables us to identify  who owned and occupied the land throughout the parish in 1841.
