Do you live in an old house in Whiston?

In 1826 the Sneyd Family commissioned a survey of the Manor of Whiston that numbered every building and piece of land on a plan.  Unfortunately the plan has not survived but the accompanying schedule has.  The schedule lists the names of owners and occupiers together with the external dimensions of houses and buildings, together with the land areas and rentable values.
