The
Social Product in the Year 1798

Thanks to the
excellent Liebling homeland book where there was a mother community similar to
ours, one can calculate the social product of a family. On page 49 of the
named book it is written: “In 1798 the Zehent? (tithe) in Liebling amounted to
3469 Metzen of grain in the total worth of 2360 guilders.” From it they
produced a total yield of 34,690 Metzen of grain in the total worth of 23,600
guilders. Liebling had 104 couples at the time, rounded off to 100
couples. Now when we divide total yield and total worth by 100, then we
come to 346.90 Metzen of grain at a worth of 236 guilders per family.
After Lotz the “Zehend” should have still followed his name since a ninth
was already given in. When that is also so then the total yield is only
31,221 Metzen and the total worth is calculated with 21,240 guilders. Per
family the 312,21 Metzen are worth 212 guilders 24x.
