Administrative/Biographical history: The Tithe Commutation Act 1836 replaced the payment of tithes in kind to the Church by a cash payment based on landholding. In 1891, after a "Tithe War" in Wales in which nationalists and nonconformists refused to contribute to the upkeep of the Anglican established church, responsibility for paying the tithe rent charge passed to the landowner. Further Tithe Acts set the rate at which the charge was levied. Tithes were collected by parish. Some neighbouring parishes were accounted together.
