codes for changes in taxation

Domesday Book records large numbers of exemptions and reductions of assessments for taxation and other public services, or fraud and evasion in their render. In some counties, notably in circuit 1, there were sweeping changes in assessments after 1066, and in many other individual cases evasion or abuse of the system was noted.

The coding categorises just two groups:

T1: This code is employed to indicate all changes in assessments for
tax and military service

T2: This code is employed to indicate all manors which had never been assessed for tax and military service or where the assessment was unknown or was not declared to the jurors.
