There are numerous documents in this file that are relevant to the great tithe survey of 1844. The Shrivenham Map and Apportionment which explains the numbering on the maps, were much copied, traced and drawn over the years by Shrivenham History Society members, and then passed over to the Shrivenham Heritage Society on formation. These seperate files have now all been amalgamated. For the interested researcher there is much to search through in this file, but with the advances in technology much of it will now be in digital format on our Catalogue and online.
The original explanation of what a Tithe map is we have left as the lead photograph. We believe it was made by the late Edith Jeacock. There is also a small area of the tithe that was concentrated on Hazell's Lane and we have put that in as a seperate feature.
We are always on the look-out for more information about Shrivenham and district. If you have old photos, know of historical facts, old documents (especially deeds) please contact us...
