Luppitt Tithemap information from the apportionment list:

luppitt tithemap image

As part of a palaeoenvironmental research project on the Blackdown Hills, Exeter University created a line a line drawing copy of the Luppitt tithemap. A scaled down copy is shown to the left, and the original can be reached via the Community Landscapes project website at Exeter University.

Each field shown on the tithemap has now been overlaid with a colour based on which farm it was part of in 1842. See below for more details.

tirhemap fields

From the the base image above, a vector image has been overlaid on each field, so that field related information can be easily and quickly updated in future.
The scaled down image to the left shows the distribution of farms in Luppitt at the time of the Apportionment.
Grey areas indicate Common land, dark brown areas are smallholdings. Note that where a colour is present in two quite different areas of the map it represents two different farms.

new icon

The scaled down image to the left shows the distribution of farms in Luppitt in 1986 when a local history exhibition was held. Local landowners entered the details of the fields they owned into a new register provided at the exhibition.
Grey areas indicate Common land, dark brown areas are smallholdings. Fields where ownership is unknown are left blank.

Note that where a colour is present in two quite different areas of the map it represents two different farms.

If you know who owned any of the blank fields in 1986, please get in touch so that the map can be updated.
