Our collection includes county, parish, town, estate and Ordnance Survey maps. The West Sussex tithe maps and apportionments, most of which date from the late 1830s and 1840s, are available in digital form.
There is also a large collection of maps held at West Sussex libraries.
Tithe maps on CD
The tithe maps were digitised in 2007 by Icam Archive Systems as part of a project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, West Sussex Archives Society and The Golden Trust.
The information contained in the apportionments, which recorded the owners and occupiers of land, were transcribed by nearly 100 volunteers who took part in the project.
You can also purchase the tithe maps on CD.
