BOOKS Tithe Sur­veys for His­to­ri­ans

by Roger JP Kain and Hugh C Prince Phillimore, 2000 Al­though it’s out of print, this ti­tle is by far the best printed re­source. It ex­plains the tithe sys­tem, the 1836 Act, the doc­u­ments that it gen­er­ated, and the use that can be made of the sur­veys and the records.

WEB­SITES HOW TO LOOK FOR RECORDS OF TITHES’

w na­tion­alarchives.gov.uk/ help-with-your-re­search/ re­search-guides/tithes This free on­line guide to the tithe sys­tem and its doc­u­men­ta­tion is highly rec­om­mended, al­though the fo­cus is un­der­stand­ably on the hold­ings at TNA.

TITHE MAPS OF WALES

w li­brary.wales/col­lec­tions/ learn-more/maps/tithemaps-of-wales/the-tithemaps-and-sched­ules This guide from the Na­tional Li­brary of Wales is less com­pre­hen­sive than TNA’s, but high­lights the spe­cific chal­lenges and lim­i­ta­tions of Welsh tithe doc­u­men­ta­tion, and there are use­ful links to ad­di­tional re­sources.
