You are in [Places] [High Street Properties]

The links below comprise extensive records of most High Street properties. Many records date back to c1470. This is an incomplete survey, subject to ongoing correction and addition. The intention is to establish a full chronological record of the occupancy of each house listed. These records have no legal status. Many of the dates noted are "spot" dates taken from estate surveys, Quit Rent rolls, Commoners' Lists, Trade Directories, Enclosure Award, maps, or other sources and may not indicate arrival or departure of an occupier.

There will be errors and omissions in these notes. If you find errors or can add information on any of these items please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
