Tithe Map Schedule Kidderminster
« on: Wednesday 09 October 19 14:22 BST (UK) »
Does anyone have access to the Tithe Map Schedule round Kidderminster?  My direct ancestor William Collins (1799-1868) lived in Stourbridge Street and was a house and land agent and sometime a teacher.  However on his daughter's birth registration in 1839 he is shown as FARMER.  This suggests that he held some land in the area either as owner or tenant.  I would be very grateful if someone can locate this on the Tithe Map.

Hello
The tithe maps for Kidderminster in 1842 are on the Worcestershire Archives website.
I found it really difficult to work out how to search the map
At the top you seem to need to click on tithes in the Inclosures,tithes ,estates choices
then in the box at the bottom name William Collins and tithes.

It seems to bring up one entry on Comberton Hill Kidderminster  just above the railway station
Tithe 1s 6d .  Size 0,0,33.
He owned and occupied it.
I can't really get a grip of it but it is there.

All the best

Many thanks Ciderdrinker.  33 perches doesn't seem much for a chap billing himself as 'farmer'.  Thanks very much for the link.  It will come in useful.
