Note on 1896 burial entry
« on: Wednesday 15 May 24 11:34 BST (UK) »
Good morning,

I am looking for help to complete a note found on an 1896, Oulton church, burial entry.

"Died in caravan on Three ? ?"

In anticipation.

Regards,

Janet

? Three Cornered Piece? - a field name?

Iniitially I thought that MollyC, but the two words do not seem to fit the letters.

You may be correct, however:

Check the handwriting elsewhere in the register.

Genuki mentions a tithe award which will give field names.  https://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/SFK/Oulton

There are some triangular fields at the east and west sides of the parish, inside the dotted line

Unfortunately, these maps are for the wrong Oulton.

The Oulton I am interested in is in the Leeds area of West Yorkshire.

Sorry.

Oops, sorry!

These two maps cover Oulton, West Riding, sheets 233, 234:

https://maps.nls.uk/view/102345004
https://maps.nls.uk/view/102345007

The sheets to the north are mostly Woodlesford, numbered 218, 219.

I cannot see any tithe award in Genuki, but there were two enclosure awards listed under Rothwell etc. dated 1793 and 1818.  They are listed in Yorkshire Enclosure Awards by Barbara English, 1986, p119.
At that time they were in the hands of the parish and Rothwell UDC but probably at West Yorkshire Archives by now.   Worth enquiring, also ask about tithes.

That is, if you do not find any other solution to this.

You would have thought that an unfortunate death like this would have made the newspapers but I haven't been able to find anything.

My immediate thought was Three Council Place?
