Question: I am looking at Felix Powell in Medfield, Massachusetts. I believe a reference I located is referring to taxes. The headings are Heads, Real and Persons/Estate. The only number I see listed is a "5" under Heads. Could you tell me if that is referring to how much he is taxed or how many are in the household?
Answer: This refers to the amount of tax paid. In this case they would have paid 5 shillings.
