Maps, Plans & Drawings

Maps, plans and drawings are frequently found in estate papers. These are often handrawn maps of a particular farm, townland or physical feature on the estate. Many of these maps pre-date the Ordnance Survey and were carried out privately by professional cartographers, surveyors and engineers. Often these maps contain intricate hand-drawn features such as colour washes, vignettes, and drawings of buildings, water features and forestry.
