Total assessment of hundred73125***1391951681911625360198

In 1306 and 1415 Headington and its members, as ancient demesne, were assessed at the higher rates of a 20th and a 10th, but in 1327 Headington was assessed for a 20th like the rest of the hundred.

The assessments for the lay subsidy granted to Henry VIII in 1523 were based on a sliding scale. Native subjects were to pay 1s. in the pound on the yearly value of their lands; 1s. in the pound on their personal goods if they were of a total value of £20 or over; 6d. in the pound on goods worth between £2 and £20; and 4d. a year on goods worth £1 or on wages or profits of £1. The subsidy was granted for four years. (fn. 9)

In the table on p. 318 a blank is left where there is no entry on the roll. An asterisk indicates that the entry is illegible or is on a missing part of the roll. Figures in parentheses are those of which the reading is uncertain. Figures in italics indicate that the place concerned was assessed at a higher rate because it was ancient demesne.
