Tithe records for East Sussex & Brighton and Hove online

East Sussex Record Office has uploaded a searchable database of tithe maps for both East Sussex and Brighton and Hove. From the site:

Seaford tithe map
Tithe maps are useful for local, building and family history studies. They include the boundaries of fields, woods, roads and rivers and locations of buildings. Most date from the 1840s and follow old parish boundaries.

The maps are usually large scale and vary in detail. They can show you whether there was a house on the site of your own home, who lived in it and what the land was used for.

For more on the collection, and how to search the images, visit www.eastsussex.gov.uk/leisureandtourism/localandfamilyhistory/esro/collections/tithemaps/default.htm
