The main documentary evidence"
This booklet is the first in a series about rural life in Felsham in the late 1830s and early 1840s. Using primary documentary evidence from the Felsham tithe map of 1838, the 1841 census, and parish registers of the time, the booklet will provide information on the people who lived in Felsham and their local environment.
Where possible, the census data and tithe information have been linked. In this way, the exact whereabouts of where people lived and their relative land-holdings can be traced. Detailed maps (based on the Tithe Map) showing field names and dwelling places provide a useful aid for researching the “hidden lives” of local people.
Booklet only: £10
