Kent Maps and Tithe award schedules, apportionment etc.

   The Tithe Commutation surveys carried out from the 1830s to 1840s, provide a great deal of information about land ownership, tenancy and land use at the time. Over 400 Kent Tithe Maps have now been digitised by the Kent History & Library Centre (K.H.& L.C.) with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The tithe map for each parish is now on a CD-Rom. They are now available to view in the county record office and are also in the major town libraries for their own areas. The tithe map CD-Rom's can also be purchased, now for only 15 per CD. The new Kent History and Library Centre is now open and CD's can be ordered by sending an email to historyandlibrarycentre@kent.gov.uk. Be sure to put "Order for Tithe Map CD" in the Subject line. 
   See below for Parishes already completed to date or in preparation. See article in Archaeologia Cantiana Vol. 89 Pages 101-118 The Tithe Commutation Surveys in Kent  By Roger J.P. Kain.
