Notes:

  1. I've not published them on this site, but I have taken photographs of some of the land tax assessments for Darcy Lever, which contain the details of all properties in Darcy Lever, the proprietor and main occupier.  I have photos for these years: 1780, 1782, 1783, 1786, 1788, 1789, 1790, 1791, 1792, 1793, 1794, 1795, 1796, 1797, 1798, 1799, 1800, 1801, 1802, 1817, 1819, and all years between 1821 and 1831
  2. From 1803 - 1810 I have listed the name as Edward Ashworth, but this may be a mistake in my note taking - more likely it should say Edmund
  3. The 1800 assessment document also contains a list of inhabitants of Darcy Lever.  These are the names as far as I could make them out:-

Lisse Tongue - Darcy Lever 1800
Above: Lisse Tongue, named in the 1800 list of inhabitants
