Place-name challenge

A number of places mentioned in the IPMs have not been identified, for various reasons. Existing works of reference may be inadequate or may not have been available when the volumes were originally compiled. Sometimes the resources required to identify places - time as well as reference works - may not have been available to the editors. In many cases, however, identification is possible with further work and in particular with local knowledge. Perhaps you can help us identify some of the unidentified locations in volume 21, listed below by county. (These are major place-names only: in general the calendars did not attempt to identify minor names such as field-names.)


We have a new corrigenda page! It will alert you to mistakes we have found while we are waiting for the next site update, when corrections will be fully incorporated.
