Tithes

Tithes were abolished in britain in 1936. Prior to that time a tithe required a part of an income to be given up for religious purposes.

Ecclesiastical law or Church law required tithes (a tenth part of income) to maintain churches and the clergy.  In addition, under Mosaic law, tithes were demanded which amounted to a payment in kind from all agricultural produce.
