Many of the field boundaries depicted on the 1839 Tithe Map to the north and east of Georgeham are visible as curvilinear cropmark and earthwork banks on aerial photographs between 1989 and 2007. They are likely to be of medieval origin and many may survive as slight earthworks as well as buried remains. They have not been transcribed, since they are depicted on the Tithe Maps.
