Suffolk Snapshots series

This series is aimed at genealogists and local historians interested in the villages of eastern Suffolk. Each book brings together data from tithe apportionments and maps, the census records of 1841 and parish registers for a specific parish to form a detailed picture of village life in rural Suffolk in the 1840s.

Tithe index series

This is a series of finding aids for the genealogist and local historian. Each booklet contains an index to the people listed as owners or occupiers of land in the tithe apportionments, which were drawn up in the early 1840s. The apportionments, and the maps that they accompany, detail every field, barn and dwelling in the parish which were liable to tithe rent charges. In some parishes, the lists also include properties that were exempt from tithes. The booklets in this series provide a pointer to the parishes where individuals owned or occupied property.

Tithe maps on CD

The tithe maps which are printed in the Suffolk Snapshots series of books are also available on CD as Tagged Image Format (.tif) files.
