1792 Tax Roll
for Clark County Kentucky

Submitted by Sandra Burbridge


The surnames beginning with B's and C's were almost unreadable and should not be relied upon without further investigation.

This information was copied from a book in the Clark County Library. I am having a difficult time identifying the source. If you are familar with this book, please send me the correct information so I may give proper credit. I also need a better transcription of the B's and C's.

First Clark Tax Roll
Chapter XI

As is well and widely understood by all who have delved into the early history of Kentucky, the primary interest of the rank and file of the first settlers of the state was the acquistion of land, sometimes and not infrequently, several tracts of land. Accordingly, in an effort to ennumerate and establish as an historical record of immediate and wide availability, the names of the earliest settlers in Clark, there is presented in alphabetical order, the names of the landowners as they appear on the first 1792 tax roll of the county. The orthography? of all names as given on the assessor's list has been closely followed even when it has seemed that misspelling was quite obvious.

I have photocopied pages from the book "History of Clark County Kentucky". The listing that's up on the Clark County GenWeb site has 6 Allin's that should be Allison's: Agnes, Anne, James, John, Robert and William. The book only has John Allen, Winifred Allen, Isham Allin and Josiah Allin. It lists the others as Allison's. Plus the Clark 1793 tax list shows them as Allison's, as well.

Now speaking of the 1792-1793 Clark tax list, I don't know if you know anything about this or not, but I have never found anything but a 1793 tax list on microfilm. In digging into that, I discovered Clark County was created in late 1792 and "formed" February 1, 1793. I take that to mean it was not an official county with county officers, etc. until February 1793.

The author doesn't give a source for his first tax roll. I'm wondering if he was trying to re-create a 1792 Clark tax list from Bourbon County or if he used the 1793 Clark list as the first one? Or is there some sort of 1792 tax list at the courthouse? I have been to Clark County several times in recent years but never found such a list other than this book. All of this actually makes a difference to me, because my 5th great-grandfather John Allen seems to show up for the first time on this 1792 tax list.
