Parishes of High Halstow and St. Mary's, Hoo in Kent
Because of the occasional discrepancies between the acreage given in the leases and the acreage shown on the estate plans, the following table shows the adjusted acreage used to calculate the rent per acre:
Rents run below the Turner-Beckett-Afton agricultural index (TBA) during the eighteenth century, rising in two large increases from 5s. to £1 0s. 9d. per acre in 1795 and again to £1 17s. 8d. per acre in 1816 to remain above the TBA for most of the nineteenth century. After 1887 the rent falls steadily, dropping below the TBA again in 1896 and finishing at 16s. 4d. per acre in 1914. No particular factors beyond the general rise and fall in nineteenth-century farm rents seem to affect this property.
