Survey of L'Ancresse Common

The Library is very grateful to have received a splendid large-format copy of the 1840 survey of the Common, by States Surveyor J. Goodwin, from the present L'Ancresse Commons Council. Originally copied in 1909, it includes a detailed map, owners of fields and information from the relevant Livre de Perchage.
