1864 SURVEY

Winters Mill

There are two surveys of Winters Mill.
Images of the 1864 survey are set out below with a transcription.

We do not have the originals of the 1842 survey (it is very faded), but we have included a transcription (click here)

Some of the words in the surveys are unclear, so we are hoping that readers with better knowledge than us will give us corrections.
