Description:Tithe maps and tithe awards are invaluable for the history of villages, properties, families, agriculture and landscape in England and Wales in the period 1837 – 1852. Tithe maps are usually drawn at a large scale of six chains [1 chain = 22 yards] to one inch.

Each piece of land or property has a reference number drawn on the map itself which is also recorded in the accompanying tithe award. In the tithe award the following details are given : name of landowner and occupiers, description of property, acreage and finally amount of rent charge payable.

Due to the earlier commutation or extinguishment of the tithes for a significant proportion of this parish or township, the award and map cover only part of the parish or township.
