A survey of William Trueman's home marsh.

In spite of the elegant water coloured border on this document the survey itself and its utility fall well below that of other survey documents in the fonds for this period. In this case the surveyor marked out the lengths of the northern boundary but no bearings are provided nor is there an indication of the acreage enclosed. No explanation is given of the segmentation of the parcel with a central patch coloured in blue although this parcel is probably the same one described in the 1826 inventory of Trueman’s estate as being 60 acres in size and valued at £600. As such it was a very valuable and important part of his holding.
