Below are a set of links to maps of the Manor of Acton estate. In 1830 Colonel Maxwell Close from Drumbanagher Estate purchased the Manor of Acton and in 1831 he employed the services of Alexander Richmond to draw a map of his new estate. The whole map is too big to show as one, so the links below show parts of the map. The map was not drawn in the conventional north-south view but intead, the east of the estate is at the bottom of the map and the west of the estate is at the top of the map. The maps will open in a new tab, and are large so may take a while to load. What is of most interest is that the names of subtenants are on practically every field.
