Durham Tithe Records Online
(17 November 2014)
Images of Durham Diocese tithe plans and apportionments are now freely available, linked from the catalogue entry for each tithe district.
Following the 1836 Tithe Commutation Act, these plans and schedules of land owners, occupiers, field names and tithe payments were created between 1837 and 1852, and together provide a valuable view of County Durham before the first publication of the Ordnance Survey maps.
