Full description

Devon County Council, 1838-1848, Tithe Mosaic, approximately 1838-1848 (Cartographic). SDV349431.

Homestead is depicted on the Tithe Map with a single dwelling accompanied by a couple of garden plots 277 and 278 on the Sampford Spiney apportionment. The Tithe Map and apportionment record the name as 'Derbyshire', not Stonycroft.

Ordnance Survey, 1880-1899, First Edition Ordnance 25 inch map (Cartographic). SDV336179.

The late 19th century historic map shows the dwelling and some small associated buildings , labelled as 'Stonycroft'. Other small buildings are shown to the south-east as well.

Ordnance Survey, 1904 - 1906, Second Edition Ordnance Survey 25 inch Map (Cartographic). SDV325644.
