Smithfield Township Tax Roll,  Bradford County PA 1816

Note from transcriber Pat SMITH Raymond:  I checked spelling by cross checking 1813 and 1814 Tax Assessment Records. Mistakes are still possible since the penmanship was difficult to read on some.

*Because I am familiar with the names, I believe Springfield residents were included.

The Smitfield Township Assessment Lists (also known as tax lists) were lists compiled each year by the township assessor, usually in the fall preceding the assessment year. Besides giving the name and sometimes the occupation these lists also gave the number
of improved and unimproved acres, horses, cattle, and other farm animals. There were also listed those families who could not pay for their children's schooling and shown as "poor children." These lists are at the Bradford County Historical Society in
Towanda and can be consulted for further information in regards to acreage, animals, etc., that a resident was assessed for. In the earlier years even young single men were taxed even if they did not own real estate.
