The 1771 tax list of Massachusetts is one of the most comprehensive and most complete tax lists ever compiled in the state. Some 38,000 names are preserved and presented here.
This is a phenomenal source of data -- all in all there were twenty-seven categories of taxable property identified. Want to know if your ancestor had a still, raised goats, had "servants for life"? How about the number of acres of fresh meadow they had; acres of salt marsh; number of cows their pasture would keep? Want to know the value of money they had lent at interest, acres of English and upland mowing land? This will quickly become a must-check source for all your 18th century Massachusetts and Maine projects.
