where can I find old maps of my area?

The farmer we bought our house from had an old map showing names of the field surrounding our house e.g. 'The onion field'. I have looked online and can only find os maps. Does anyone have any ideas where I can find a copy of a map with names like this please? Would love to get one framed for my husband for Christmas! Thank you

    If the map was made by the farmer, it could be that the fields were what he called them. For instance, Onion Field, was where he planted his onions. Creekside Field could have been one of his fields near the creek.

    If the names of the places were the official names, you might be able to get a map from your town hall or county archives.

    Land Register, you start by going to your local library - they will know where the central library and archive is.

    Start with your public library.

    Then look for your local historical society.

    You could try Francis Frith

    https://www.francisfrith.com/uk/departments/old-ma...

    Did you find the OS older maps?

    http://maps.nls.uk/os/6inch-england-and-wales/coun...

    If neither of those links have what you are after, try your local museum or library.
