These are maps of a selection of the estates and land held firstly by James Bateman, secondly by John, Viscount Lord Bateman and thirdly; William Bateman as well as some miscellaneous maps of Bateman family property. For the township of Covenhope in the parish of Aymestrey, there is also an accompanying reference book, which lists tenants’ names and the land they each occupied. The majority of the maps give the names of neighbouring land owners. The post 1800 maps of Kingsland and Aymestrey however, refer to apportionments, which appear to have been lost. Other maps of Bateman Estates c. 1709 can be found in the British Library.
