Full description

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

The Tithe Map shows the farmstead with broadly the same arrangement of buildings as the later First Edition Ordnance Survey historic map.

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

Arrangement of buildings appears quite similar to the Tithe Map.

Gover, J. E. B. + Mawer, A. + Stenton, F. M., 1932, The Place-Names of Devon: Part Two, 469 (Monograph). SDV337894.

Plumley is 'Plumlegh' in the 1333 Subsidy Rolls.

Ordnance Survey, 2013, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV350786.

Comparing the late 19th century historic map to the modern map, the farmstead is largely unchanged in terms of the arrangement of buildings, although one or two buildings ddepicted on the First Edition map in the central area of the yard are no longer there.
