1839 Tithe Map

 

The Tithe Map of 1839 details all the field names of the village. The maps were prepared following the Tithe Commutation Act of 1836. This act allowed tithes to be paid in cash rather than goods. The map and its accompanying schedule gave the names of all owners and occupiers of land in the parish.

The original maps are kept at the National Archives at Kew, but copies are available at the Suffolk Records Office. A copy is included in the Deben Valley Place Names book, a copy of which is available to view in the Church.
