Ogilby's Road Maps - 1675. The full title of this wonderful set of old maps is: An Illustration of the Kingdom of England and Dominion of Wales: by a Geographical and Historical Description of the Principal Roads thereof. By John Ogilby 1675. Basically, what we have here are over 100 route maps (some of them spanning several pages) between principal places in England and Wales, showing all cross roads and road intersections, mileposts, villages and towns though which the roads pass, hills, mountains and forests, rivers, streams, and fords, bridges, etc. Even the type of bridge is noted, for example, stone arches, wooden with rails, etc. When our ancestors travelled, these were the routes that they used.

Villaire Anglicum Villaire Anglicum. A View of all the Cities, Towns and Villages in England - 1678. An index of places in alphabetical order. Each town and village in England in 1678 is listed along with information on the County in which it resides and it's "Hundreds, Rapes or Wapentakes". The "Hundred" was used for administrative, judicial, military and taxation units. It was basically a sub division of shires, each subdivision containing around a hundred families. The Hundreds were further subdivided into ten or a dozen households, which possibly gave rise to the parish Unit. Within these subdivisions families were responsible for the welfare of one another. Alternatively, a Hundred could be one hundred acres of cultivated land, however it appears that the size of the areas varied considerably. Wapentakes is the Northern word for Hundred and possibly derives from the Old Norse vapnatak meaning weapon taking. Rapes is again another regional word for a sub divided area such as a Hundred. This book could identify the long since lost and forgotten place where your ancestors lived. If you have the name of a town but can't locate it, this book will help. Ref 1110 £15.20
