Records of Taxation (“hoogst-aangeslagenen”) – 1852-1900 – Tinco Lycklama and his father and brother
This page delivers extracts from official publications, showing the names of the “hoogst-aangeslagenen” (literally, “highest taxed“) in the province of Frisia, in The Netherlands – between 1852 and 1900. The status of “hoogst-aangeslagene” refers to the payment of real estate taxes only. This status was used to determine those (male) persons eligible for a seat in the “Eerste Kamer” (senate) of the Dutch Parliament – at a time when the “Provinciale Staten” (provincial assemblies) had to elect senators from this list of “hoogst-aangeslagenen”.
These lists were published in the Staats-Courant, the official government bulletin, and were republished by the most important newspapers in the provinces (in Friesland, this was the Leeuwarder Courant). The information provided gives the level of taxes as well as the location of the real estate properties on which these taxes were levied. It must be noted that this does not reflect the total tax situation of these individuals, as their income from employment or trade was covered by other taxes.
