A Middleton & No Pembertons in Tithing Maps of Nantwich

Searched the tithing maps ( for any Pembertons and Middletons near Nantwich. Found only William Middleton, who occupied a croft (plot 81) owned by William Foster and John Minshull in the township of Alvaston. William's use was mowing. It was recorded as 1 rood and 8 perches. A rood is an acre and 8 perches is 132 feet so am not certain what that means. The shape of the parcel is a fat teardrop.

The World Wide Pemberton Family website is Ready

Member registration has been working for several weeks, payment of membership dues has been working for a couple weeks, the content is ready for prime time (I think) and we will begin our membership drive soon. Meanwhile, if you are interested in the Pemberton lineages (and DNA has proven there are several) then you will want to join now before dues go up. Join here.
