1910 Land Valuation Maps

Scope and Content

Land valuation maps of Glamorgan, 1910.

Administrative / Biographical History

The Finance (1909/1910) Act (or Finance Act 1910) included provisions for taxing any increase in the value of land, by undertaking a baseline valuation of all land owned in England and Wales in 1909 against which subsequent sale prices could be compared. The valuation was undertaken by District Valuation Offices of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue, and involved the compilation of Field Books and maps listed all property; a 'Domesday' book summarising this information, and various Forms (including Form 37, listing all holdings of a particular individual). The Welsh Region was divided into 11 districts, including the Swansea District, which covered parts of Glamorgan and Carmarthenshire.
