by

 

William Vaughan

 

2017

 

The late seventeenth-century map of the Manor of Castle Cary, now in the British Library, is an unique historical record. It is the earliest surviving pictorial survey of this Somerset town and nearby Ansford and Hadspen. It show the road, fields and buildings in the Manor, the owners or occupiers, and how the land was used.

 

This book reproduces map details accompanied by modern guide plans that identify major features. It gives a vivid insight into what we can learn from the map. There are appendices transcribing the records of the individuals and properties shown.
