Malham Moor tax 1915/16

It isn't known where this information originally came from, it was recorded on a scrap of paper in the MLHG archives and appears to be a Land tax assessment. It has been transcribed "as is", and despite the strange entries at the end which have the date 1918 and the fact that the arithmetic doesn't seem to add up, it is a useful list of the occupiers of the farms and properties on Malham Moor at the time.
