The 1543 Subsidy for Stithians

The Subsidy of 1543

for the Cornish Parish of St Stithians

From "The Cornwall Subsidies..."1524, 1543 and the Benevolence of 1545", edited by T.L. Sloate

The Bookshop - Bernard D. Welchman



           Returns for the 1545 Benevolence for Stithians are missing, quite possibly because few, or none, of the residents possessed the minimum 5 in lands, fees or offices that the benevolence required.

             However, we do have the 1543 Subsidy returns and these are copied below.

               Surnames follow the same format as that seen and discussed in the 1522 Muster and Loan.and the 1524/25 Subsidy. In many cases the taxpayer is identified by his place of residence and in other cases by his father's first name. These are identified with the associated modern place names in the former case. In the later case the men are bracketed in the original list, sometimes indicating that they shared the same wealth, these are indicated with a ditto mark " . For example, we have  Simon Trehere sharing goods to the value of 2 with his son, Richard Symon.
