The Branscombe Project

Branscombe Tithe Map


In 1840, as part of a reform of Church of England finances, every parish was surveyed in detail, resulting in ‘tithe maps’ and ‘apportionments’ which list detailed information about each plot of ground.

The Devon Record Office has digitised all the East Devon tithe maps, and has kindly allowed us to host the Branscombe map.

Phil Planel, the East Devon AONB Parishscapes officer, worked with local communities to transcribe all the apportionments. The intention is that, eventually, tithe map and apportionments will be interactive, but it will be a while before this happens. Meanwhile you can study both the Branscombe tithe map and the Branscombe apportionments.

Parishscapes was a three year project (2007-2010), delivered by the East Devon AONB team on behalf and with the support of East Devon District Council, Natural England and Heritage Lottery Fund.

All of Devon’s tithe maps are now on the Devon County Council website here.

The Branscombe tithe map and apportionment can be found here.
