DEVON CHURCH RATE LISTS

Provided by Richard Grylls

Parish Listing

Those Church Rate Lists that have survived provide useful mini-censuses of a good proportion of the adult males (and a few females too) in a particular parish in a particular year.
 
It would appear that church rates were in fact levied annually, to cover the costs of candles, communion wine, and other regular running expenses of the church. Interestingly, except for a brief period during the Commonwealth, the raising of Church Rates has never been confirmed by statute. It was always a matter of 'Common Law'. Paying the rate became increasingly unpopular among non-Conformists and Catholics until 1868, when the compulsory payment of Church Rates was abolished by statute. Till 1868 it was also a matter of Common Law that the fabric and furniture of the nave and tower were the responsibility of the parishioners, while the chancel was the responsibility of the incumbent. Thus, the cost of repairs to the chancel was borne by the parson, while repairs to the rest of the church were paid for by the parishioners.1
 
Such lists as were made for facilitating the annual collection of Church Rates have not usually survived. However, rate lists for a large number of Devon and Cornwall parishes were compiled in 1612/13, and these have survived. They were possibly the result of an edict from the Bishop of Exeter, who may have wished to compare the rates in all the parishes in his diocese. Other rate lists were compiled for exceptional or specific reasons, such as when the parish church concerned needed repair, or the bells needed to be re-cast or re-hung. Quite often the preamble at the head of a surviving list explains the reason for the rate being levied. When money was needed for repairs or renewals, the parish authorities appealed to the Bishop that they should be allowed to raise funds. The Bishop would (via an injunction or proclamation) announce that a rate should be raised, and officials in the parish itself would decide who should pay how much. The amount payable was usually based on the acreage (and quality) of land owned or leased by a person, not on the size or number of houses on that land. However in towns, where many people lived in houses on very small plots of land, a different (lower) rate was imposed on such house-holders. The list compiled by church officials was then discussed at a 'vestry' meeting, with many of the rate-payers present. Presumably most queries about the amount of an individual's rate were sorted out at this level. Sometimes, however, an individual's rating led to a legal dispute. A large proportion of the Church Rate lists which have survived have done so because there was a court case about certain details in the rate. For the court hearing a copy of the rate needed to be produced. The Devon Church Rates Lists that have survived are held at the Devon Record Office, Exeter (DRO), mainly in two collections within Diocesan Records:
 
1) Miss Olive Moger sorted and catalogued a vast number of ancient Devon records, shortly after a bomb had destroyed part of Exeter Cathedral near where the records were stored. Most of the church rates she collected together are now 'stored after basket D'. As can be seen in the Parish Listing below many rates lists are accompanied by other relevant documents. However, in several cases the church rate list itself has not survived, only some document concerning the raising of a rate - usually the Bishop's injunction. Also, Miss Moger's index of rates indicates that some of those she found are stored with the Glebe Terriers of a parish, and not within the main collection of rates. Terriers were surveys of church lands in a parish, but they often included church property too. The surveys were compiled by the parson (or his clerk) and sent to the Bishop. The parson's survey was sometimes accompanied by a rate list. The Terriers Index compiled by Miss Moger, parish by parish (with a supplement/addendum at the end), often exhibits the word 'rate' against parishes for which no rate is shown in her Rates Index. Sadly, it appears that such 'rate' entries in the Terrier Index do not refer to a list of rate-payers, but rather to a small mention of a rate in the Terrier itself.
 
In the Parish Listing that follows all documents catalogued by Miss Moger are marked 'M'. The documents themselves are original. Some - those marked * in the Parish Listing - are only partially legible, due to damage or fading. A few - those marked ** - are so dilapidated, sadly, as to be unsuitable for production in the search room.
 
2) The Revd. J. Chanter transcribed over 150 church rate lists. Most seem to have been used in evidence in a court case about the rates. His transcriptions of C17 rates are in four volumes, Chanter 854 c, d, f and g, while his transcriptions of C18 and C19 rates are in eleven 'volumes', Chanter 184-194. The later volumes are indexed, except for 190 and part of 189. In the earlier volumes only right hand pages were numbered - where the reference includes a 'v' the back of that page (folio) is where the rate will be found.
 
A number of Chanter's early transcripts seem to have been of somewhat poorly compiled original lists. The amount of people named varies considerably. Quite often a person is just referred to as the 'occupier' of a certain property, no personal name being given.
 
In the Parish Listing that follows all transcriptions by the Revd. J. Chanter are marked 'C'.'
 
In a few cases Chanter seems to have transcribed a rate list of which the original has survived (in Miss Moger's collection), but fortunately there is very little overlap between the two collections. All in all about 60% of Devon parishes are covered, a good number of these being represented by more than one church rate list.
 
The following abbreviations are used in the following Parish Listing:
      M Rates  =  to be found in the Diocesan Church Rates Collection
      M Terriers xx  =  to be found as number xx in the Diocesan Terrier Collection
      M Terriers Supp.  =  to be found in the Supplementary Terrier Collection
      Epis. Inj. only  =  Episcopal Injunction to proclaim a Rate only
      plus accom. doc(s).  =  plus accompanying documents
 
3) The County Archivist at the Devon Record Office is certain that a few additional church rate lists have survived, and that they can be found among the records of a particular parish. If they do exist they will probably appear within the churchwardens' accounts material. No search of the separate records of the 475+ Devon parishes has been undertaken yet, but researchers who find no rate list for the parish of their choice in the Parish listing below are advised to examine the collection of documents held at DRO relating to that parish before giving up hope entirely!
 
N.B. Since both the original lists in Moger's Collection and the transcripts in Chanter's volumes are somewhat fragile, it is probable that photography rather than photocopying would need to be used to make a copy. All enquiries should be addressed to the Devon Record Office, Great Moor House, Bittern Road, Sowton Industrial Estate, Exeter, EX2 7NL or DevRec@devon.gov.uk.
