Verrechten, Geschoß

The word "Verrechte" comes from the German word "entrichten" = pay what is due. Verrechte were recorded in a Verrechtebuch also known as Geschoßbuch, which means taxable farms and their dues were listed. In other words, these books contain tax computations. Usually the owner of a property or properties is named.

Erbzinsen

are taxes which are attached to a property owned by a manor lord. Such taxes can consist of money or delivery in kind.  Each property was evaluated according to its yield. Such a measure may have been named "Schock". In order to understand more fully how this worked read the history of Grosserkmannsdorf at http://www.radeberger-land.de/chronik/radeberg/erksd/index/html.
