Possible, but not sure, even 23 plus must be big property.

The most definable ideal for comparison is basing it on disposable income, but usually the best practical guideline is the old "price of a loaf of bread".

Under the heading, Duties of Servants, Horses and Carriages, what was the significance of the two columns, Male servants and Bachelors. I was wondering was the word Bachelor being used as single male or did it have some meaning in the horse and carriage world ( can't find anything to that effect ) It would appear that this is an early form of married mans tax allowance in force. In the link it states that a Roman Catholic clergyman is exempt from this bachelor rate.
