Tithe Map Apportionments - What are they?

You may have noticed that each plot of land on the tithe map is identified by a number. This number relates to a document called the apportionment schedule. This unwieldy document, which is not easy to consult, was in some cases actually glued to the map.

The apportionment provides a wealth of information about the various plots of land in question – owner, tenant, land use, name, etc. Historically, it was on the basis of the tithe map and this document that the tithes were fairly apportioned and commuted to a cash payment.

It is thanks to the Parishscapes volunteers who transcribed the apportionments, supervised by Martin Smith (Otter Valley Association), that the information is now easier for you to read and search through.
