Harwood Commons Enclosure Awards - 1801

The following is an extract from The Enclosure of Harwood Commons 1797-1801 by J. J. Francis.

Chapter V. The Allotment Apportionment

The Award allocations were detailed on the Plan and by reference to the contemporary Land Tax Assessment records we can define the property, ownership of which qualified for an allotment, and the relevant tenants of those properties. We must bear in mind, however, that properties in those days were likely to be split into smaller cottages within the same building and that separate fields were also owned in isolation.
