Four manuscript maps recently acquired by the British Museum

Four manuscript maps recently acquired by the British Museum Four manuscript maps recently acquired by the British Museum Hugh Cobbe M.A. with 2 plates I n the last eight years seven maps have been acquired by the Department of Manu- scripts, British Museum, which are of interest to the local historian. They are as follows: Add. MS. 52293: Th e Manor of Woodstock, Co. Kildare, by Joh n Rocque, 1755-7. Add. MS. 52522: The manor of Sherborne, Dorset [1569-74]. Add. MS. 53711 A, B: Map of Ireland by Daniel Augustus Beaufort, together with his published memoir on the making of this map, 1792. Add. MS. 54784: Report of Joh n Grundy concerning the draining of Deeping Fens, Lincolnshire, 1770. Add. MS. 56066: Estates in Kent of Lord Gwydir, 1806 (complementary to Add. MS. 18142). Add. MS. 56070: Part of the Suffolk Coast, [1579-80]. Add. MS. 56077: An estate in Farnborough, Kent, by Jame s Chadwick, 1725. It may be of use if a description, in detail, of the more interesting of these maps appears now, since inevitably some time must elapse before they can be included in the Department's published catalogues. Accordingly the four earlier maps are discussed here, and, as far as possible, set in their context. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of the Society of Archivists Taylor & Francis
