Over Half A Million New Tithe Plots Added 13th August 2021

Our Map Explorer™, the powerful mapping tool for family historians, has been boosted this week by the addition of four new counties of georeferenced Tithe Maps to the record set layer. This release adds another 784 maps, bringing the total number of Tithe Maps in Map Explorer™ to over 10,000. This means there are now over 4.5 million viewable records indicated by Map Pins on Map Explorer™.

You can now view the Victorian Tithe Maps linked to apportionment records for Cornwall, Derbyshire, Northamptonshire and Worcestershire which are overlaid on the modern and historical maps of the base and middle layers.

Tithe records allow researchers to find land that was owned or occupied by ancestors in the period 1837 to 1850s, with some additional altered apportionments in later years when property was sold or divided. This means that it was not just the wealthy landowners who were recorded in the tithe records but also those tenants who may have farmed a small plot or lived in a cottage.

To find out more about this release, you can read our featured article "Keeping it in the Family - The Tale of Land's End".
