MAPS

Further to my post re Samuel Hinde yesterday. As I mentioned he owned many pieces of land and wooded areas in Whittington in mid 1700. I have now been joined by my friend and fellow researcher Elizabeth Pemberton in trying to plot on old maps (both working from our separate homes !) where these pieces of land actually were.Names like Far Dam Close, Piper Hole, Hollow Meadow, Near Brown Holme and many more have disappeared from recent maps.It is difficult to imagine that the whole area around Whittington had very few houses at this time. However, the good thing is that the two rivers appear on all of the maps and are a good starting point to work from.
