Full helpers description
PARRY, Lawton (survey of Lawton Parry's Estates)
Descriptions and maps of farms and villages in Salop, Denbigh and Montgomery at the turn of the 19th century. Useful to local historians with an interest in that area.
Detailed usage description
The collection contains particulars of valuations of estates owned by Lawton Parry in the counties of Salop, Denbigh and Montgomery at the turn of the 19th century. Farms and villages are described and in several cases mapped to the level of individual fields. In a few cases tenants are also named, but unless you are very lucky this is unlikely to be use as a family history resource.
This would be a useful resource for local historians wishing to find some contextualising detail about farms in the counties of Salop, Denbigh and Montgomery. The maps are very well drawn and detailed and therefore it shouldn't be difficult to match the estates described in these volumes to modern landmarks.
