Subject: [FoD] Longhope: Orchard and Land names
Date: Thu, 25 Jul 2002 16:01:56 +0100
I am trying to pinpoint the location of several pieces of land in the Longhope area that were owned by my PARRY ancestors between about 1700 and 1850.
If anyone has access to old maps of the area, or knows where I can obtain old, detailed maps (e.g tithe maps) I would be very grateful.
The land names are as follows (NB the spellings are taken direct from wills of 1749 and 1796):
Watering Place (orchard) and adjoining Mon Meadow and Ardway (the latter two bought from Samwell ELTON)
A farm called Nuppun/Nuppin, including Great Meadow, Dawes Peece, The Langnot, Nuppin Hills and Nuppin Wood (bought from Thomas DAWES)
Lower Nuppin, including house, 'milhous', garden and orchard (bought from Samwell BULLOCK)
Whitemores estate, including Cow Paster, Doctors, Nine Acers, Lower Plow Field, Upper Plow Field, Born Piece (bought from TAILERS family)
Combey's Pach (bought from John COALMAN and John DAWES)
Whome ?dins (orchard, bought from Samwell BRIGHT) and adjoining Margits/Margets Orchard, Margits/Margets House and Little Orchard
The Westfield (bought from John KIDSON)
Grete Beach, Little Beach, Corrs Orchard and Beach Arles Coppice (bought from Mr. DICKS)
'Nupping' and Whitemore Farm appear on the late 18th century map available at www.old-maps.co.uk but I can't track down any of the others.
Any help would be much appreciated!
