Colour Tithe Maps for Rutland and Huntingdonshire added to TheGenealogist

TheGenealogist has just released more Colour Tithe Maps from The National Archives to their National Tithe Records collection. These high resolution colour digitised maps provide greater detail. With this release, researchers can see the plots owned or occupied by ancestors that lived in the counties of Rutland and Huntingdonshire at the time of the survey in the 19th century.

The new data includes Colour Tithe Maps showing plots of land covering the years from 1837 to 1855 with some much later plans of altered apportionments.

These tagged colour maps and their fully searchable tithe schedule records have been reproduced from the records held at The National Archives. They join the previously released apportionment record books, greyscale maps and colour maps for Buckinghamshire, City of York, Middlesex, Northumberland, Surrey, Westmorland, and the North and East Ridings of Yorkshire.

The National Tithe Records collection gives the family history researcher the ability to search by name and keyword (for example parish or county) to look for all levels of society from large estate owners to occupiers of tiny plots such as a cottage or a cowshed.
