Early Drake records - Lay Subsidy Roll 1525
These early records have been compiled over a period of time from the Drake-L, English databases and other sources. No attempt is being made by me to take credit for material that has been sent in by other people. My apologies for not crediting all sources of this material -
If you would like to add any material to this page please send me an email with your details to Roy Andrews - roy@xroyvision.com.au It will take about a week before your enquiry will appear on this database - or post your enquiries - comments directly onto the DRAKE MESSAGE BOARD.

The first complete return of individuals taxed on personal wealth. It is accepted that this probable represents two thirds of all adults, the others not earning enough to be taxed on. Three categories are listed Land, Goods or Work, a person was taxed on whichever the assessors considered would bring in the most revenue. The figures are pounds per annum.
 
This table shows the spread of the Drake family in Devon; it is prior to the beginning of the church Registers. You will note that there are no Drakes listed in the far east of the county, they were not living in that area until later. For ease of identifying locations I have put them under the ancient Hundreds.
