  • Richard, Yes, regrettable but not 'improper'; at the time there was a rumour/belief/ hope that a report/account/record of it would be written. Was it? If so, where can it be found ? Do you know how the operation was carried out and if you don't, is there someone who might?

  • But be aware than some Oxfam shops may refuse to take your offering. As the saying goes you may need to "shop around". PKC. On 07/10/2015 12:16, 'Jeff' genealogy.barnsley@^$1 [ordnancemaps] wrote: I agree with Yolande, take them to a charity shop. It will benefit others.

  • One "key" to the parcel numbers are the parish "Books of Reference", published by the O.S. between 1855 and 1888. However their coverage partial (or even fragmentary) and their are serious problems of interpretation and evaluation. Also I believe that most of Suffolk is not covered. Hard luck! A helpful introduction is J.B. Harley's /_The Ordnance Survey and Land -Use Mapping...
