The hand-drawn map of Bourton circa 1865

Map of Bourton circa 1865

It's not known who drew this map but it is remarkably accurate. It shows where all the properties are located and who occupied them at the time of the survey. By a careful study of occupiers names when compared to known historical facts, we are able to conclude with a high degree of certainty that it was compiled and drawn in 1865. It is a useful tool for researchers and access to a high resolution scan is available in the SHS Digital Vault upon request.
