1846 map

Post by speleobat2 » Thu Mar 31, 2016 11:29 am

Does anyone have a link for a map circa 1846 for the Belhelvie area of Aberdeenshire? I found a place named in a death record--MulPotertown--and Google didn't have any results for that search.

Hello Carol,

There's an Alex. Moir, Mill of Pottertown, Belhelvie, in what looks like a list of voters, in the Aberdeen Journal, May 16, 1866.


http://www.scotlandsplaces.gov.uk has it as
"A small farm steading situated close to Mile-end, the property of Alexander Moir Mill of Pottertown."

Fumbling with my iPad,
Alan

LATER.
Search 1841 at FreeCen, with Pottertown in the street box. Select the farmer, then try the next household button, lots of interesting variations there.

Thanks, Alan. I did see Pottertown and wonder about it. The family is from Belhelvie so it's in the right area.
