The Parish Atlas of England : An Atlas of English Parish Boundaries

The Parish is the territorial unit for most
public registering in local history. In this sevenyear, solo, labour of love project, Tim Cockin has traced over all the early Ordnance Survey 6-Inch County Series maps at 16.8mm (0.6619 inch) to 1 mile using desktop publishing and high
capacity memory personal computers. Putting in the text of all key and secondary places, than if the original maps were reproduced shrunk.

In addition, thousands of tithe maps have been researched to take those counties (such as Devon, Glos., Norfolk, Lincs., Shrops., Som. etc) back to their pre-1844 states (for they were surveyed after boundary changes in the 1876 and 1882 Acts). All 39 counties of England are represented, with consideration to panels making wall charts or fold-outs for separate publication.

Reviewer: Anthony Pink

When I first saw this tome advertised I had this gut feeling that it was something I must get my hands on, and so with some thoughts of possibly not getting a copy (at the time stock levels were quoted as 1 book), I was delighted to get my copy last week.

I must congratulate the author, T C H Cockin (and all those who helped and supported him) in his seven year endeavour, or perhaps I should refer to it as a labour of love.

The clarity and quantity of information, including places long gone, is fantastic, and I would recommend every family historian to order a copy for their libraries. In the event that you consider the price too high (with almost 900 pages for £55.00 I don't), consider asking your local family history society or local library archive section to add it to their stock lists - you won't be sorry.
