Who owned Preston? — 3

Old view of Preston Bridge

I’ve now added a series of maps to accompany the tithe schedule for Fishwick that I had already put on line. The information is based on the greatly appreciated contribution of the volunteers working on the tithe schedules project for the Lancashire Place Name Survey. Two of the interesting discoveries in the Fishwick records are firstly the extent of the property portfolio of the Preston temperance campaigner Joseph Livesey, and secondly the discovery of the preservation in field names and boundaries of the pre-turnpike route into Preston from Walton-le-Dale.
