| Assessment for tax:
This figure is the total assessed value of the benefice. Note that for a cathedral church a zero figure is given because its
assessed value is derived from holdings which are listed elsewhere in the taxatio text.

can be used to access Google Maps). Constituent parts of the benefice, such as vicarage, dependent chapels, pensions, portions
