1778 Tithables

Source: "The History of Rockbridge County, Virginia", By Oren Morton, Publ. 1920.

Transcribed by Andrea Stawski Pack

In 17th and 18th-century Virginia, the term "tithable" referred to a person who paid (or for whom someone else paid) one of the taxes imposed by the General Assembly for the support of civil government in the colony. In colonial Virginia, a poll tax or capitation tax was assessed on free white males, African American slaves, and Native American servants (both male and female), all age 16 or older. Owners and masters paid the taxes levied on their slaves and servants.  
Tithable lists do not enumerate anyone under the age of sixteen or any adult white woman (unless she was the head of household).
