Feb 27, 2014

Lancaster County 
Bart Township, 1815 Tax List


The following is the direct tax for Bart township, Lancaster county, Pa. for the
year of 1815 

Land owners taxed on property, homes, barns etc… on the land.
Included here will be the land owner and the names of persons with adjoining
property. If your Ancestor is found further check of these records could tell you
the size of their home, if it was one or two story, sometimes if it was stone or log
, size of property, size and building material of barns and other out buildings. and
lastly the amount of properties worth. This will include Non – residents owning
property in this township. They are listed in separate list after residents (please
note this person script made it hard to tell R from N when it was the last letter of
the name so names like Millen may be Miller, also many i’s were not dotted and were
hard to tell from e’s)

I will give one example of what the full tax form said in complete. Between
….. ……. is the spaces which were to be filled in.
