Devon Tithe Apportionments

The Devon tithe apportionment transcriptions for all parishes have been merged together into a single CSV file.  This file is large, 65 MB, and older computers may not load the file correctly so for ease of use this large file has been split in two.

Note: these transcriptions have not been checked for accuracy.

The files are sorted alphabetically by parish and then tithe plot number.
