Old Maps of Plaxtol

Historic Maps of Plaxtol and the local area.

The Rector in 1901, according to 1901 census, was William Dalrymple Fanshawe who was born in Ireland around 1856 and is related to the three brothers Dalynple Fanshawe who all commanded Corps or Division in World War I. Only looked him up because I have a three volume edition of Shaftesbury's Characteristicks which he owned in 1880. My own great grandfather was the next recorded owner of the work.

From 1982-1993 my brother Robert Owen was the owner of Nut Tree Hall. He lived here with his wife Jan and daughters Mikayla & Natasha.
