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.
