Project ID971
DescriptionBetween January and June 2018, a shared learning project was run with the University of the Third Age in Greenwich. As with the London and Middlesex SLP, the team was charged with using the hearth tax returns as a starting point and following their interest to reveal stories of Greenwich and the people who lived there in the late seventeenth century. In this post, Carolyn Heathcote shows continuity in the exempt status of some people living in the Church Wall area of East Greenwich and finds references in the parish registers to people possibly connected with those living in Church Wall (who were listed in the hearth tax return).
