Tithes were payments (usually one tenth of yearly production) for the upkeep of the parish church and its clergy. Originally made in kind gradually more and more were made in money. The ownership of tithes was a property right that could be bought and sold and over the years many of them passed into lay hands particularly afer the dissolution of the monastries in the mid sixteenth century.
The 1836 Tithe Commutation Act did away with all payment in kind and assessed a monetary value to the land. To calculate the amount payable a map and schedule was made of every parish in England and Wales.
The information below is taken from the Map so the values are not shown.
