Cheshire Tithe Maps Online

 

Cheshire Tithe Maps OnlineAll the Cheshire Tithe Maps & Apportionments are now available online. The Cheshire Record Office website states…..

Almost 500 Cheshire tithe maps are now available online. Together with the information recorded in tithe apportionments, they are a unique record of land ownership, occupancy and use in Cheshire 150 years ago.

You can use them to answer questions such as:

  • Where did your ancestors live?
  • Who lived in your village or even your house?
  • What was land in your area used for?
  • Who owned land in your area?

You can also compare the tithe maps with later Ordnance Survey maps and aerial photographs.
