 Nineteenth Century Reproduction County Maps

These 92 informative Victorian maps are superbly reproduced at approximately 150% original size, covering the whole UK and show sufficient detail and features to be of real use to researchers, detectorists, family historians and anyone interested in how their county looked over 125 years ago. The scale is around 5 miles to the inch varying according to the size of the county.

 

The maps for England and Wales come from Thomas Dugdale’s Curiosities of Great Britain (1846) and are by the renowned mapmaker Joshua Archer. They contain an abundance of information such as detailing the Hundreds, market towns, manors, polling places, roads, rivers, canals, mail coach routes and the few railways that existed at the time. Also included are many castles, abbeys, priories, Roman sites and even some coin hoards.

 

The maps for Scotland, which detail all the parishes, and Northern Ireland, which detail the baronies, come from two Philip’s Atlases published in 1882 and 1883 and are by another famous mapmaker, John Bartholomew.

 

The Channel Islands and Isle of Man maps come from The National Gazetteer published in 1868.
