Cambridgeshire Land Assessment Records
Scope and Contents
Lists of landholders, tithe particulars, poor rates, rate assessments and valuations for the various parts of Cambridgeshire.
In 1856 the Poor Law Guardians in Cambridge resolved upon a survey and valuation of rateable property in the parishes of their union. The survey was carried out by Richard Harwood and John Rolfe Mann. Its findings form MSS.Add.5730-5745. An earlier assessment of land in Cambridgeshire, MSS.Add.5717-5729, was partly the work of Thomas Utton.
