 THE DEVELOPMENT OF SURNAMES IN THE SHEFFIELD AREA
Most tradesmen or small businessmen were required to pay 6d, more prosperous merchants, franklins and small gentry (armigers), substantial yeomen (fermour del graunge), and lords of manors (fermour del maner), presumably according to their means, paid between 11d and 10 shillings (10s).
The interesting points arising from Table 2 are firstly, that Rotherham had a high number of bakers per subsidy payer, probably underlining the fact that its urban population was larger than Sheffield’s, even though the latter parish was more populous.
Secondly, Bradfield and Ecclesfield were apparently important for the production of livestock and Sheffield was important for the processing of these “beasts” with its relatively large number of butchers.
