Twelve ‘Days’ of Christmas feature

Between now and the big day, we will be posting our ‘Twelve “Days” of Christmas’ – different people with the surname ‘Day’ who featured in the records of the hearth tax!

Here, to get the ball rolling, are the first 3:

Nathaniel Day of Epping Upland parish in Essex, charged for 4 hearths in the 1670M collection

Widow Day of Kirkby Stephen parish in Westmorland, charged for 1 hearth in the 1670M collection

Edward Day of Cherington parish in Warwickshire, charged for 3 hearths in the 1670M collection

Keep watching; three more ‘days’ soon!
