Old map of Tredegar
« on: Sunday 04 March 18 12:55 GMT (UK) »
Good afternoon all

Does anyone know where I can access an old on line map of Tredegar (1850-1900)? I'm trying to look at the movements of my ancestors.

Thank you

David

The 25 ins to mile are more detailed but you'd need to select particular parts of the town:

Additionally the tithe maps  are recently available locating properties and occupants that had land/fields associated with them. It was previously called Cynefin whilst being digitalised, and now called 'Places of Wales' https://places.library.wales/ on the National Library of Wales website.
You can type in Tredegar into 'find a place' at the above link, and then overlay the tithe map (right hand side of page) when the modern map comes up
I'm afraid it is a bit addictive  ;D ;D

I understood pomp to be interested in addresses between 1850-1900 and the tithe maps were produced  between 1838 and 1850   ( https://www.llgc.org.uk/index.php?id=7347 ), so some of the later addresses would not show and the occupants would not be the same.

I must agree with you that the Tithe maps are addictive.  I found two different sets of ancestors occupying fairly close fields, houses and gardens. They're also interesting to track the local gentry  :D
