Abstract:

Annotation

The land tax duplicates--which ostensibly provide a complete yearly inventory of all landowners and tenants in every county in the United Kingdom, parish by parish--are considered the most important systematic documentation available on British landed society between the Domesday Book of 1086 and the New Domesday of 1873. Ginter launches a sweeping attack--with devastating conclusions--on the previous uses of the land tax duplicates as the evidential base of many of the leading questions in modern British historiography: the decline of the small landowner, the impact of enclosure, and the study of wealth inequalities.
