Cartographer: Ames, Israel
Medium: Ink on vellum
This is a map of lands at Tilbury in Essex by Israel Ames. Ames produced several land surveys during the later half of the 16th century. The divisions of the land are recorded with the names of the interested parties, tenants or owners. Woodland is indicated by a stippled ground. Roads are annotated by information about where they lead to and the number of miles to their destination. In common with other maps by Ames these are annotated with a distinctive hand and feature representations of dwellings with unusually tall chimney stacks.
