Map of the estate of Edward Horne at Upton Grey, Hampshire, 1741
Maps are a valuable archive source for anyone interested in researching the history of their house. They are relatively easy to use and don’t tend to pose the problems with language and handwriting which can be found with other documents. You can use them to pin down when a house was built, identify changes to its structure and some maps will show who owned/occupied the property. To discover more come to our workshop, Uncover the history of your house on 27 November.
