Stilgoe Land Holdings c.1808

by Jon Malings

An account of Land belonging to Henry, Nathaniel and
Zachariah Stilgoe lying in the Parish of Deddington

This document, a single sheet of A3 size, was made available by a member of the Stilgoe family to whom we express our thanks.

The Stilgoes have farmed in and around Deddington since Tudor times.  This document, which looks like it might be an account taken just after the Enclosure Award of 1808, details the holdings of the three brothers Henry, Nathaniel and Zachariah (in order of seniority).  It gives a brief description of each property, the occupier, size, annual value, poor rate, church rate and land tax.
