When looking for old farms in England, I usually go to the Old Maps site
of the area. Quite often the names of he farms are given there. The
URL is http://www.old-maps.co.uk/
Newcastle, Ontario, CANADA
I wish to find a farm in Okehampton, Devon. Have visited twice but
unable to find anyone locals (town centre shops - White Hart Hotel) that can help or knows
of any neighbouring Farm names.
My SPRAGUE's lived at the same farm (owners or rented no idea, presume the latter)
Chichacott/Cheesacott Farm, Okehampton Hamlet from mid 1700's to 1901 Census,
70 - 80 Acres. Neighbours at time of Census's are Alfordon Farm Stockley Farm
Fatherford Farm, Lower Fatherford, Halstock Farm in other direction of Census Barton Farm
Knowle Farm Brightley Cottage & Mills & Farm, Hill Farm, Northwood Farm.
Does anyone recognise these Farms and could point me in the right area of Okehampton so
when I go for
a THIRD visit I can get a photograph. Our family SPRAGUE has been traced early
Your help much appreciated
