Description

The maps and apportionments which were produced for about 75% of the parishes and townships of England and Wales as a result of the 1836 Tithes Commutation Act are recognised as being among the most important sources for local history research. This practical guide explains the background to the creation of the maps and apportionments, shows how they were originally used and discusses a range of studies which local historians can readily undertake using tithe material.
