In the Middle Ages, parishioners paid tithes to support the parish church and its clergy, and, although much altered, the tithe system only finally disappeared following the Finance Act 1977. The speakers will highlight the potential of these records to investigate the past from medieval to modern times.
Elizabeth Finn (Kent Archives Service) will introduce the tithe system over time. After a refreshment break, Dr Benjamin Dodds and Professor Christopher Dyer will discuss medieval tithes through case studies involving monks and peasants. After lunch, Dr Paula Simpson and Stuart Morrison will examine tithing in the early modern period using sources from Kent and London. Following a second refreshment break, Dr John Bulaitis will explore tithe rebellions in modern times. Audience members will need to provide their own lunch.
