The Orkney poll taxes of the 1690s by James Irvine( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like their notorious namesake of the 1990s, the poll taxes of the 1690s were an unpopular and unsuccessful innovation in national taxation. Many of the original records have been lost over the intervening years, but those that survive provide the equivalent of a census, a treasure trove for genealogists and local historians. The surviving records for Orkney are now transcribed and published for the first time
