1840 Tithe Map Of Ultra Pontem Caerleon
(Christchurch Parish)
Tithe Map of Ultra Pontem Caerleon 1840 in the Parish of Christchurch Newport Mon.


We were delighted to have the opportunity to scan 7 of the 9 sheets of the Christchurch Parish Tithe Map. Thus these maps can be examined online in detail for the very first time. The other two sheets were too large for the scanner. However, the seven maps represent a large portion of the present Newport East of the River Usk. We are most grateful to Newport Community Learning & Libraries for their help with this project.

The 1840 Tithe Map has each building and plot of land numbered. By referring to the apportionment one can discover the following details:

The Landowner
The Occupier
Name and Description of Lands and Premises
State of Cultivation
Area (in Acres, Rods and Perches)
Amount of Rent-Charge Apportioned Upon the Land Payable to Vicar
Amount of Rent-Charge Apportioned Upon the Land Payable to Vicar
Any Other Remarks

The apportionment is arranged in alphabetical order of the Landowners' Surnames. Hence finding a particular plot number or occupier involves delving through the whole document. We have transcribed the hand written apportionment into a database making the content more easily accessible. However, please note, we only recorded the details for plots with buildings on them.
