Bill, although I can't prove it at this moment, I do think you are right, that the
Land Tax Assesments were filmed at the old PRO at Kew
by the Mormons.
One thing I forget to tell everyone is that in some instances, the owner of a piece of
property, may own more than one piece of property i
the same parish or in different parishes. sometimes, all the properties are put together
in the parish where the landowner hmself lives.
In one case, one of my relatives lived on a farm in Llanwenog parish that I could never
find on those LTA's. I later found him listed with
the owner of the land in a different parish, miles away. Annie

The 1798 Land Tax assessments are different!
They went to the Public Record Office (now the National Archives at Kew)
for use by the clerks recording the owners who were exonerated from the tax
- essentially these owners had bought it out with a capital sum (much
needed by the government at the time to help finance the Napoleonic Wars).
These would have been much easier for the LDS to film.
