TheGenealogist adds Berkshire, Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire and Oxfordshire Tithe Maps

The addition of black and white tithe maps for four English counties linked to the apportionment books will enable researchers to find the details of the plots, their owners and their occupiers at the time that the survey was taken in Victorian times.  By using the Map Explorer™ controls the researcher can then see how the landscape changes over time with the aid of the georeferenced historical and modern map layers.
Tithe maps and records were drawn up from 1836 to the 1850s, with additional altered
apportionments in later years when property was sold or divided. Tithes record levels of society from large estate owners to occupiers of small plots such as a homestead or a cottage.
