Tithe Reference of 1843

The site of 135 Canal Road in the Congleton Moss area is now a Spar Store. My theory is that this was a portion of Moss Farm (now a housing estate) and that after his fathers death in 1816, his mother sold off the farm, keeping the land detailed in the tithe reference. In maps of 1882 and 1891, the pasture & meadow areas are shown as allotments.

Between 1824 and 1831 the Macclesfield canal was built through this land, separating the smithy from Jacob's dwelling and pastures. In the 1841 census, the hosue next door to Jacob's was listed as occupied by a Thomas Morris, Blacksmith, aged 28.
