This is a legal guide to the Tithe Commutation Act of 1836 and subsequent legislation to 1838. Enacted between 1836 to 1891, the Tithe Acts, as they are commonly known, were a series of land reforms that replaced the ancient system of payment of tithes with goods, such as grain, with monetary payments. The first edition of Schomberg's work, a substantially shorter book, was published in 1836. Both editions of this work are rare.
