Subsidy Rolls 1662-1668

Subsidy Rolls list the nobility, clergy and laity who paid a grant in aid to the crown. The rolls list the persons of means in the community who were subject to the payment of subsidies, which then formed the government's main method of direct taxation. Details are given of the name of each person, where they lived (usually a townland) and the amount of subsidy that they paid. The amount of the subsidy was based on the valuation of either the person's land or goods.

Because they include only the wealthier members of society, they are less useful than hearth money rolls. Nevertheless, the hearth rolls are incomplete in many areas and the subsidy rolls do provide a useful substitute in those parishes that are deficient.
